The Language of Learning: How To Make Your Feedback Conversations More Specific & Impactful with the Shared Expectations of Your Instructional Framework

  • Wednesday, August 8th, 2018
  • 11:00am CDT / 12:00pm EDT / 9:00am PDT

What We'll Cover

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to identify, internalize, and use the language of your instructional framework to have feedback conversations that change teacher practice.

We'll Explore:

  • Why “look-fors” and checklists of teaching behaviors are unhelpful—and how to use leveled expectations to gather evidence instead.
  • Why it’s worth using more detailed language than you can keep in your head—and how Repertoire’s “autocomplete” technology can put it at your fingertips
  • How to use leveled performance indicators to interpret the evidence you’re gathering—without prematurely rating teachers
  • Why qualitative fit, not frequency or consistency, is the best way to rate teacher practice on a rubric
  • How to turn small bits of evidence from short classroom visits into reliable judgments about teacher performance
