School Turnaround Teachers: Selection Toolkit. Part of the School Turnaround Collection from Public Impact
Public Impact
This toolkit includes these separate sections: (1) Selection Preparation Guide; (2) Day-of-Interview Tools; (3) Candidate Rating Tools; and (4) Candidate Comparison and Decision Tools. Each of the sections is designed to be used at different stages of the selection process. The first section provides turnaround teacher competencies that are the best currently known, measurable distinguishers between very high performers and more typical or lower-performing teachers in a turnaround setting. The list focuses on competencies that would distinguish between very successful teachers and the rest in a turnaround situation. The second section describes tools that are designed for use during the teacher candidate interview. These tools are designed to be used in tandem with the "Selection Preparation Guide," which provides an overview of the selection process. They include questions as well as structured note-taking pages to use during the interview. The third section presents a scoring sheet that is designed to help select teachers who will be successful in a turnaround school--a school that needs to move from very low performance to high performance quickly. The fourth section provides guidelines for choosing among candidates. Appended are: (1) Complete Competency Rating Levels; and (2) Critical Competency Rating Levels. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
