Workshops:

Through workshops, Learning Alliances will:   

  • Help schools develop leadership at multiple levels in order to sustain, renew and transform teaching and learning for all students. Increase leadership capacity over time as the most productive way to bring about improvements that can be sustained.
  • Create or enhance existing leadership teams (LT) that clearly understand, based on a specifically developed rubric, what their exact responsibilities and roles are in terms of enhancing instruction.
  • Develop and enhance leadership responsibilities by creating a rubric that builds on leading curriculum alignment, providing pertinent resources and quality professional development for staff on the use of alignment resources, align school observation forms with district priorities, monitor the effectiveness of the demonstrations of learning, and align and ensure strong articulation of standards and objectives among the grades in each school by providing vertical articulation.
  • Create an instructional feedback rubric that provides guidance to each administrator in clearly explaining the concept goals and rationale behind instructional feedback and focuses feedback on the key actions and the instructional behaviors each school values most allowing each school administrator to tie the feedback process to meaningful and targeted professional staff development.
  • Support school-based Leadership Teams in leading the vertical alignment of decision-making by powerful professional collaboration in problem-solving and planning groups.

All workshops include follow up through e-mail, webinars, teleconferences, podcasts, blogs, and wikis in order to support and enhance participants’ professional learning and the application and assessment of that learning. Participants take part in or use a discussion room or bulletin board to talk about the skills, review additional materials posted, or interface with the facilitator or a coach/mentor in implementing the newly learned skills or knowledge.

Targeted population: K-12 Principals, assistant principals, department chairs, instructional coaches, lead teachers, coaches, prospective school leaders.
