Free Webinar from PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group

Looking Inside Classrooms: Teacher Effectiveness
Date:   Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Far too many young children are deprived of effective teaching—a critical foundation for children’s future academic success. In the early years and early grades, practitioners, policymakers, and parents need to broaden and enhance the understanding of what constitutes high quality teaching. Teaching practices must be associated with improved school experiences and outcomes for children, both academically and in the social-emotional domain. In this webinar we will explore the use of observational measures to assess and inform teacher effectiveness in a PreK-3rd grade context. Addressing a broad range of instructional practices and priorities, these measures examine how teachers create opportunities for children to interact with their physical environment, their peers, and their teachers in ways that promote intellectual engagement and provide a social-emotional foundation for learning. This webinar will provide examples from schools districts and individual schools that are using these observational tools in novel and effective ways to promote better teaching.
