Can’t See the Forest for the Trees? Growth-Oriented Teacher Supervision

Feedback form is now closed.
In robotically trying to observe and document rubric components, principals concern themselves with compliance rather than supervising or coaching….they “can’t see the forest for the trees.”  They are so concerned with checking the boxes, filling in the forms, checking teacher goals, and linking observations to rubrics to meet administrative requirements, that they have lost sight of the purpose of effective teacher supervision….to grow teachers and improve student learning.  With mandated state requirements, districts should take the time to reevaluate purpose, effectiveness, analysis of ALL data, results, and their model in general.  Bring meaning to compliance.
The session will highlight the following:
  • Taking a step back to determine if all the “pieces” of their system add value
  • How to be compliant with state regulations, but use them to your advantage
  • Look at growth-oriented frameworks, not laundry lists of components.
  • Since student testing is still required, use it meaningfully, not for punishment
  • Getting teachers involved in their own supervision process…done “with” them not “to” them
  • Learning how technology can help principals and teacher in a reflective process
 Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the presenter during the presentation.
