Let's be real. Look-for lists are often nothing more than lists we use to check off teacher performance or to identify an area of improvement in the classroom. Teachers see little value in the process, and these lists often lead us away from student learning rather than toward it. So how do we close the loop between teaching practices and student learning? How do we look beyond our look-fors and craft meaningful feedback that empowers our teachers? What does it look like to give feedback to a teacher who has more experience than we do or expertise in a subject that we know nothing about? And what happens when we walk into a classroom and see 10 different things that we want to give feedback on, but we don't know where to start? In this fast-paced institute geared for anyone in an instructional leadership position, we'll address these questions and more as we put our new learning into practice through video classroom visits and feedback scripts. Let's learn to explicitly connect teacher practice to student learning and student learning to teacher practice and flip the script on observation and feedback practices.
