In January, teachers and principals often take stock of progress and make plans for the rest of the school year. Teachers and principals may be asking: How are students doing at this point in the year? Are teaching skills improving? Did we reach the goals we set at the start of the school year?
Educators need to answer these questions to ensure they grow their practice and impact student learning.
This one-day workshop will support teachers in analyzing student work and instructional practice data, so that they can decide if they should continue to work on the same goals, set a new goal, or refine the goal they already set. The workshop will help principals and coaches develop processes for supporting teachers with this important analysis.
During the course of the day, participants will learn strategies to analyze student learning and teaching data to make informed, data-based decisions on how to refine their instructional work for the rest of the year. Participants will leave with a process and tools they can take back to their districts to support others in this reflection, analysis, and mid-year goal-setting.
Expect to leave the workshop recharged for the rest of the school year!

We find it is most powerful if teams of teachers, coaches, and principals from the same school attend together. This shared context allows people to collaborate most effectively and take the work back to their systems. That said, we welcome anyone to attend, with or without a team.
