Instructional Leadership Through the Examination of High-Leverage Practices

Ended Jul 25, 2020

Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

Join Simona Goldin and Kyana Taylor for a session that will provide a rich opportunity for instructional leaders to develop an understanding of several high-leverage practices. This workshop will focus on methods for observing and giving feedback on particular high-leverage practices, including strategies and protocols for productive dialogue around teaching practice. We will focus on issues of equity and access broadly, especially in this particular moment in time when the COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated the deep inequalities in educational access sowed by structural racism. As such, we will consider together how instructional leaders can utilize and design virtual learning platforms and settings to work to support ambitious, equitable, and just learning opportunities.

This synchronous professional learning workshop is part of the Virtual K-12 Laboratory Classes and Professional Learning Workshops. The K-12 laboratory classes are structured to make it possible for educators, policymakers, and education advocates to engage directly in the close study of teaching practice in elementary mathematics. The program will provide participants with opportunities to delve into the complexity of teaching, explore and challenge what it means to use skillful teaching practice to disrupt injustice, as well as develop specific professional skills.
