Abstract: Highly Effective Teachers
Quote from ASCD (American Supervision for Curriculum Design):
“Definitions shape what we value and support. It’s critical to define effective teaching to build systems that reward, support, and extend the influence of effective teachers, but the task requires careful consideration to avoid definitions that limit teacher creativity or leadership or reduce teacher and student achievement to a single test score.“
So we are inviting you to join us for a discussion about how we shall define effective teaching and being effective teachers on October 13th. Mark your calendar and we are looking forward to talking to you soon!
