This partner's approach and services

How we provide curriculum-aligned PL


Our workshops tend to include explicit teaching of content knowledge, modeled lessons or components of lessons, and structured practice of lesson components. They are designed to lay a foundation of content knowledge and/or how a curricular component is designed to be further explored through coaching or PLCs.


Coaching for leaders or teachers is frequent and has a heavy emphasis on modeling and practice. Coaching always includes digging into specific lessons/modules (not generic moves out of context), so that teachers or leaders may be growing their coaching or teaching move toolkit but are also building content knowledge.


PLCs/grade team meetings/content meetings are structured experiences that include introduction of or practice with new knowledge or techniques. There is an element of collaboration and learning from all voices in the room, but it is more directed, collaborative learning rather than a facilitated share out of practices.


Consultation with leaders includes development of content knowledge and coaching skills but is largely focused on how to implement a more systematic and data driven approach to instructional management (i.e. managing a team of instructional leaders or teachers systematically toward a set of frequently monitored outcomes).
