Placa, Nicora – Learning Professional, 2020
Teachers spend a lot of time talking about students: They talk about how students learn, how to best plan lessons for them, and how to understand their written work using different protocols. Instead of hypothesizing about what a student might do on a task or why a student made a certain mistake, why aren't teachers just asking the student?…

Godber, Yvonne – Learning Professional, 2020
Improving educators' abilities to recognize and respond to signals that indicate students are upset, confused, or disengaged is a powerful but often underused strategy for ensuring that all students are accessing rigorous learning.

Chapman, Sue; Mitchell, Mary – Learning Professional, 2020
Peek into a math classroom, virtual or physical. What are students doing and saying about their math learning? Are they engaged?

Helping all students become more self-directed…

Gleason, Sonia Caus; Berg, Jill Harrison – Learning Professional, 2020
When COVID-19 appeared on international radar this year and began its march around the globe, it revealed to any who might have previously denied it that the work to eliminate educational inequities is far from done.

Burton, Amy – Learning Professional, 2020
Why is formative assessment -- a proven powerful instructional practice -- so elusive in classrooms? As a regional professional learning provider for several years, Amy Burton rarely observed the use of formative assessment, even though, when asked, teachers could define it -- a quick check, during instruction, of what all students understand so…

Foster, Elizabeth – Learning Professional, 2019
A recent qualitative study by a team of researchers looked into how grade-level teams of teachers are thinking about causes and strategies based on looking at student performance data. What is interesting in these findings is how infrequently teachers attribute student results to instruction -- just 15% of the time. Teachers in this study were…

Hargreaves, Andy; O'Connor, Michael T. – Learning Professional, 2019
The four B's framework described in this article grew out of the authors' global study of "collaborative professionalism" (Hargreaves & O'Connor, 2017, 2018). They define collaborative professionalism as ways educators work together with depth, trust, and precision to achieve impact. The authors then set out to study how it manifests…

Flowers, Jody A. – Learning Professional, 2019
Professional athletes spend hours honing their skills through video analysis; attorneys video themselves practicing opening arguments or coaching clients; plumbers, mechanics, and electricians video their craft to demonstrate their work. It could be argued that teachers' interactions have more long-term impact than any other professional skill,…

Arnett, Thomas – Learning Professional, 2019
Meeting students' individual learning needs has never been easy and seems to only become more challenging with the passage of time. Teachers today struggle to keep up with society's expectations. It isn't enough for them to just cover their curriculum. They are expected to differentiate their instruction, address students' social and emotional…

Arnett, Thomas – Learning Professional, 2019
Good teaching does not come from mere check-box compliance. Teachers who have real impact with their students continually use their expertise and intuition to evaluate, adapt, and improve how they implement new strategies within their classrooms. New practices rarely make a difference unless teachers engage eagerly and thoughtfully in adopting and…

Manassah, Tala; Roderick, Tom; Gregory, Anne – Learning Professional, 2018
Racial inequity is a pernicious problem in American schools. Discrepancies in school discipline show that black students are two to three times more likely than their peers to be suspended and expelled, even for similar infractions. This directly affects the racial achievement gap, school dropout, and involvement in the juvenile justice system.…

Wanless, Shannon; Winters, Dana – Learning Professional, 2018
Research indicates that creating a psychologically safe school climate matters for adult learning in the same way it matters for children's learning. School leaders can help teachers feel safe to take risks, share differing opinions, and be vulnerable in front of peers before and during professional learning activities. An example of why…

Gabriel, Rachael – Learning Professional, 2018
Classroom observations and the feedback they generate have great potential to support educator development, especially when compared with other components of teacher evaluation systems. Challenges to observation include: (1) The dual foci of teacher evaluation (accountability and development) cannot be addressed simultaneously; (2) Excellent…
