Administrator Walkthroughs and Model School Visits

Administrators will learn to observe instructional models and practices that indicate and support effective ELA teaching and learning including classroom environment and décor, and student interactions with peers and teachers. Additionally, administrators will learn how to notice and create a school-wide culture and atmosphere that reflects a commitment to a literacy-rich environment and student engagement. Schoolwide facilitated Walkthroughs and Model School Visits typically utilize checklists and a variety of other resources designed to inform, assist, and promote tangible goal setting and plans of action.

PLC and Collegial Study Groups

Schoolwide supports Administrators in establishing and sustaining a Professional Learning Community (PLC) or Study Group. Our Administrative consultants initially work collaboratively with Administrators to determine a focus for systematic inquiry and research and subsequently provide the necessary training and support so the team(s) can eventually take ownership of the inquiry process. Schoolwide facilitated PLCs and Study Groups may be comprised of participants from an individual school or district, or regionally to include participants from various nearby schools and districts. PLCs and Study Groups typically utilize a variety of digital platforms to support and enhance continuous communication, information sharing, problem-solving, and celebrating.
