Studying Skillful Teaching: Using Data Day to Day

Event Details

This course is foundational in building teachers’ capacity – the knowledge and skills as well as the courage and conviction – to promote learning and increased achievement. It is based on the belief that teaching is a process of decision-making, not a prescriptive list of do’s and don’ts; skillful teachers never stop learning through experimentation, data analysis, study, and collegial sharing about what works best for their students. While providing an overview to a comprehensive model of the knowledge base on teaching, Studying Skillful Teaching: Using Data Day to Day focuses on a few areas in depth;

  1. Planning lessons that are clear and accessible to all students:
  2. Communicating high expectations; and
  3. Using a variety of assessments to inform planning, teaching, and reflecting on lessons.

Participants will learn both how to collect and analyze data and how to respond to data by drawing on research-based instructional strategies. In addition, a strong theme throughout the course is strengthening understanding and respect for our students’ diverse cultural backgrounds.

There are no prerequisites for the course.
