This partner's approach and services
How we build district capacity
Our goal in providing CBPL is to build our state, district, and school clients’ capacity to confidently continue HQIM implementation work without us.
How we provide curriculum-aligned PL
NSTA offers personalized packages of synchronous in-person, synchronous virtual, and/or asynchronous online CBPL workshops to support teachers and administrative teams.
We work with clients to customize workshops based on their selected HQIM, time constraints, grade-level(s), and discipline(s) to best support their professional learning goals.
NSTA offers in-person and virtual instructional coaching services that support classroom implementation of contemporary research and three-dimensional (3D) standards. Through the use of our externally evaluated, 3D-specific protocols, teachers receive personalized support in contemporary pedagogy to successfully lead 3D teaching and learning and/or implement HQIM in their classroom.
Our PLC approach supports professional knowledge (e.g., deepening understanding of sensemaking routines, surfacing student ideas) and improves classroom practice. PLCs include reflection tasks connected to classroom teaching and learning submitted to NSTA. PLC groups receive a certificate of completion that can be submitted as evidence of their collaborative learning.
Mentoring sessions provide sustained professional learning over time using a customizable suite of tools to support all phases of HQIM implementation. These mentoring sessions can be used to directly support teachers or provide guidance to the school leadership team in supporting their classroom teachers.
