2 Lanes to Leadership: Classroom Visits and Grade-Level Meetings Build Teacher Capacity
Morgan, Denise N.; Williams, Jeff L.; Plesec, Katie
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n2 p28-31 Apr 2011
Like many school districts across the nation, Solon (Ohio) City Schools is committed to improving the quality and depth of student learning while simultaneously fostering the growth of leadership in the district. To achieve these goals, the district is investing in sustained professional learning designed to build leadership among faculty and to promote meaningful collaboration among teachers within a school and across the district. Two specific professional development approaches demonstrate how one district continues its journey to accomplish these goals. Grade-level meetings and classroom visitations are part of the district's two-pronged approach to developing leadership and fostering collaboration within the district.
