Getting the Most from a Site Visit: A Guide To Assist Schools Visiting a Leadership and Learning Site for Reading Best Practices.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
Noting that professional development activities are a key component in the continuous process of improving instruction, this guide assists schools that are considering a visit to a Leadership and Learning Best Practice site (Illinois schools that have demonstrated a commitment to the reading best practices as identified by the Best Practices and Resources Committee of the Right to Read Initiative). After discussing its purpose, the guide lists questions to ask when selecting a site to visit. It then lists the 22 Best Practice sites and provides a chart indicating what sites are implementing which of the 14 reading best practices. The guide then offers advice in focusing the observation of the site. It also lists possible strategies for each best practice to look for in the classroom, and questions to consider after completing a site visit. Contains a 7-item list of resources available through the Illinois State Board of Education. (RS)
