The Marzano High Reliability Schools (HRS) framework serves as a strategic planning framework to help schools focus on specific, research-based conditions for continuous school improvement. The HRS overview workshop introduces participants to the five levels of the framework and the hierarchy in which they are organized.
Embrace your potential to grow as a professional. In an era of increased accountability, self-evaluation and self-reflection practices can empower teachers to chart their own path to improvement. In this workshop, participants will learn what teachers can do by themselves, for themselves. Uncover why classroom autonomy and collaboration go hand in hand when it comes to effective teaching and student success.
Provide targeted, constructive support for instructional change. Coaching can play a significant role in broadening educators' instructional repertoire and improving both teaching and learning. Effective coaches build positive relationships and follow protocols that lead to lasting changes in classroom instruction. This workshop provides instructional coaches and administrators with step-by-step guidelines for working with teachers to increase their effectiveness.
Learn how to transition from teachers who work in isolation to teachers who work in collaboration and from stakeholders who think in terms of my responsibility to stakeholders who think in terms of our responsibility.
Engage students deeply in the joy of learning. Create a lively, dynamic classroom in which students are excited to learn and have the drive to keep exploring until they succeed. This workshop explores the four questions behind student engagement and shows how to set the stage for positive answers to each of them.
Take measure of your assessment practices. Are they helping students understand and attain learning goals? Are they helping you refine your instruction, give feedback, and report on student progress? Learn research-based practices for using quality formative assessments aligned with solid grading practices, and enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing your instructional decisions are based on sound assessment data.
