This partner's approach and services

How we provide curriculum-aligned PL


Teaching Lab partners with instructional leaders to design and deliver in-person, virtual, and/or hybrid workshops. Workshop topics are developed collaboratively with instructional leaders and may include unpacking HQIM, learning evidence-based practices, unit/lesson unpacking, implementation of HQIM, modeling how to teach HQIM, practicing to teach, and/or analyzing data.


Teaching Lab provides both direct-to-teacher coaching services and capacity-building for instructional coaches, or “coaching the coaches.” Coaches engage teachers in observation and feedback cycles grounded in HQIM. Support for school or district instructional coaches includes learning evidence-based coaching practices and support to engage in observation and feedback cycles.


Teaching Lab customizes PLC support to LEA assets and needs. PLC support may include: lesson and unit unpacking and internalization, engaging in Cycles of Inquiry, data analysis, teacher leadership development, and/or support for student learning acceleration.


Teaching Lab provides in-person or virtual consultation for instructional leaders to envision, design, and manage effective professional learning systems. This includes project management, visioning and strategy support, executive coaching, building local capacity, and ensuring all educators have access to high-quality professional learning that improves teacher practice and student learning.
