SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a free webinar showing a model for teacher observations and evaluations developed and refined by real educators that maximizes student achievement and growth and deepens teacher effectiveness and practice, April 30 at 2 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time.
“Teachers are the creators of the workforce,” said Chet Linton, School Improvement Network CEO and president. “If they are to prepare 100 percent of our students for college and a meaningful career, they must have the tools and resources they need to support their continued growth and development as educators. Teacher observations and evaluations can be a very beneficial part of this process if, instead of merely giving teachers a grade, they connect educators to the resources and support they need to grow and improve.”
In this webinar, participants will learn how a team of actual educators in Cupertino Union School District in Cupertino, Calif., has developed and refined an observation model over the past two years using Observational Rounds to foster student achievement in some of the district’s high-performing elementary schools.
Webinar participants will see how this applied observational learning theory and teacher support can do the following:
- Increase student achievement and engagement
- Expand teacher support through teacher observations
- Quickly identify areas where teachers are struggling
- Improve teacher practice
- Provide differentiated professional learning
- Build leadership capacity
The webinar will be held April 30 at 2 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time.
