Three webinars

Free Webinar:
Intentional and Targeted Teaching
The Framework for Intentional and Targeted Teaching®—or FIT Teaching®—is a research-based, field-tested, and experience-honed process that captures the essentials of the best educational environments. In contrast to restrictive pedagogical prescriptions or formulas, FIT Teaching empowers teachers to adapt the most effective planning, instructional, and assessment practices to their particular context in order to move their students' learning from where it is now to where it should be.
To be a FIT Teacher is to make a heroic commitment to learning—not just to the learning of every student in the classroom, but to the professional learning necessary to grow, inspire, and lead. Join Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey, authors of the new ASCD book Intentional and Targeted Teaching: A Framework for Teacher Growth and Leadership, in an engaging webinar where they 
examine what makes great teachers great, and share how 
educators at all grade levels and all levels of experience are 
 taking intentional steps toward enhanced professional practice.

and instead works alongside them to help them meet the goals of 
the district's long-range plan and to improve teacher performance 
in their schools. He holds frequent meetings with principals to 
discuss and improve their work, visits classrooms constantly, and 
strategically uses data about classroom performance to help school 
leaders make decisions. In this webinar, Contreras, a 2016 Education 
 Week Leaders To Learn From honoree, will detail the strategies he 
uses to partner with principals to help them grow professionally, as
