Zimmerman, Diane P.; Sommers, William A. – Learning Professional, 2020
To put it simply, public reflective practice is a check-in: How are we doing, what are we learning from practice, what changes are making a difference, and so on.

As the new school year starts, one of educators' many challenges is assessing where students' skills stand and filling the gaps.

Guilott, Maria C.; Wigby, Karen; Owen, Leslie Ann; Parker, Gaylynn – Learning Professional, 2020
A dilemma for teachers at all levels is planning for transfer of learning, or students' long-term retention. Transfer of learning takes time, a precious commodity for teachers bound by a tight schedule.

Killion, Joellen – Learning Professional, 2019
Coaches make hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions that affect the daily work of teaching and learning. These decisions are not arbitrary; they are guided by the mental models coaches hold. Mental models are comprised of assumptions, beliefs, and generalizations, and they shape how people see the world and act in it. Coaches' mental models are…
