In this final edWebinar of this three-part series focused on transforming schools. Traditional professional development is an integral part of being an effective teacher, so it’s time we start talking about new models for giving teachers the world-class support they truly deserve. It’s time to take coaching to the next level by delivering it in real-time. This edWebinar unpacks the specific practices that coaches and teachers are using to implement research-backed classroom management strategies. We are talking about more than guide-on-the-side or preach and hope tactics that too many PD programs rely on. Instead, our expert educators look at how the right combination of strategy and real-time support leads to immediate and lasting improvements.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, instructional coaches, and school and district leaders.
