Actionable feedback for teachers is critical to accelerating instructional practice and increasing student learning. But providing effective feedback that boosts teacher autonomy, self-reflection, and ownership must be learned and continuously cultivated over time.
In this workshop, instructional leaders will learn best practices and steps to fostering feedback conversations that build a trusting relationship, while ensuring that the feedback provided is actionable for teachers. Instructional leaders are provided the opportunity to observe conversations and practice their own use of language, stances, and strategies in order to apply this knowledge to their own contexts.
