Looking Collaboratively at Student and Teacher Work. Turning Points: Transforming Middle Schools
Burke, Peggy H.
Center for Collaborative Education
Looking collaboratively at student and teacher work is a process in which teachers primarily, but also administrators, parents, students, and members of the community, look at student and/or teacher work with the goal of improving student learning. To structure the process and create a safe, caring environment, teachers use a protocol to facilitate the conversation. A protocol is a structured format with a set schedule and specific guidelines for communication among participants. This guide provides six protocols, structured formats that will help a school community engage in the process of collaboratively analyzing and discussing teacher and student work. The protocols help to create a safe climate for sharing work and looking at it from multiple perspectives. They vary in focus and are suited to different goals. (Contains 10 footnotes.)
