Important and somewhat hopeful piece in the NY Times today on where we stand with new practices in classroom teacher observation, coaching, and evaluation. Link is:
Colleagues in our Atlantic Research and Atlantic Education Firms spend a great deal of their professional time supporting and helping build the capacity of instructional leaders. We also see good progress. Instructional coaching and instructional leadership are two of the biggest levers in accelerating the work of teachers and students. Our work in Chicago Public Schools affirms these University of Chicago findings. There’s a lot of progress yet to be made, for sure. As a profession, we are making good strides it seems.
Have a great week.
