Best. PD. Ever! Calibration, PLCs, and how performance assessment can transform professional learning. FILLING

Limited Capacity filling up

PD for teachers is too often comprised of a one-time “expert” coming in from outside to “teach” something new to staff. Teachers are often not provided with the ongoing time, support, and feedback to make it meaningful and embedded. The true experts, the teachers, reside right within the school. This session will focus on developing structures and processes that allow all staff to engage in ongoing and embedded professional development (like deepening assessment literacy, inter-rater reliability) within their collaborative teams. Participants in this session will engage in calibration with real student work to better understand the structures and processes necessary to bring PD to the next level.
