Overview: Teachers who struggle often have difficulty reflecting on and adjusting their practice in response to information gathered during observations and shared during your conferences with them. Change is challenging, regardless of the research-based, foreseeable and positive outcomes that regularly result from the change. Maintaining a positive and professional relationship while sharing news that’s hard to hear, then charting a course forward takes time and patience.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will learn and apply specific supervisory styles.
  • Participants will learn apply  the components of effective conferences with teachers who struggle, then use that information to participate in authentic conferencing scenarios designed to help participants practice their skills with their colleagues in small groups. 
  • Participants will be able to support educators to be reflective on data about their instruction, and change their practice to benefit their students.
