Accountable Talk Training (Online & Self-Paced)
Registration Closed
Teacher talk should be 20% of class time. Student talk should be 80% of class time. These are not exact percentages for every class, but the brain needs to talk about learning. Students are social beings and need to discuss with peers learning that has taken place inside the classroom. Accountable Talk will support this effort. Accountable Discussions empower students to draw up arguments based on evidence. Students learn how to respect the views of their peers while strengthening their communication skills. They get practice in being good conversationalists, participating in conversations in a polite manner. This training highlights the “how to” of getting students discussing in a manner that promotes learning. NOTE: Once registered, the online training link and directions will be sent to you. Questions?

Danielson Training for Teachers (Online & Self-Paced)
Registration Closed
What does a Proficient Danielson Classroom LOOK LIKE, SOUND LIKE, AND FEEL LIKE to students? Teachers evaluated with the Danielson model need to sign up for this online, self-paced, 3 hour training session. This training is not to teach you about Danielson, but to look at the Domains, Indicators, and Elements as they are inside a classroom. As you work through the training, my hope is that you will be able to see some of the examples and be validated or see areas that you could improve upon. Sometimes support is needed for the best learning and teaching experience. NOTE: Once registered, the online training link and directions will be sent to you. Questions?
