Feedback form is now closed.
In this session, we’ll focus on the essential question of how to conduct classroom observations that genuinely improve student learning, increase equitable practices, and build teachers’ capacities to become reflective, data-driven practitioners. Using the formative classroom walkthrough model developed by Connie Moss and Susan Brookhart, participants will engage in readings and discussions to explore the differences between traditional observations and formative observations in which student work, not instructional practices, drive reflection. Viewing a lesson through a student lens provides a powerful framework for effective coaching and collaborative inquiry. Teams are encouraged to attend together to explore this high-leverage classroom observation model that allows for meaningful, personalized professional development for teachers while also contributing to a positive professional culture of adult learning. All participants will have time to explore various resources and create an implementation plan for formative walkthroughs at their school sites.
