- Thinking About Our Thinking
We teach teachers how to bring their best reading, writing, thinking to the surface, so that their students can see it in action.
- Learning in a Labsite
Our work is grounded in real kids, so we bring teachers together in one classroom, where we can study one instructional component together.
- Studying in Teams
We teach teams how to grow their practice together through unit planning, video observation, professional reading, and analysis of student work.
- Observing Teacher Practice
We support our teachers by observing an element of their practice we’ve been studying together. Teachers determine the focus and drive the process — we’re there to gather evidence and debrief the experience together.
- Reflecting + Growing
Our goal is for teachers to own the learning process. Through our self-assessment tools and other reflective practices, we guide teachers to setting goals for their practice, working toward those goals, and reflecting on their successes and challenges.
