8 Things To Look For in Today's Classroom (Visual)

8 Things To Look For in Today's Classroom (Visual) | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
A couple of years ago, I wrote a post on "8 Things To Look For in Today's Classroom", and it has been something that has helped my own learning, and hopefully others as well. Sylvia Duckworth, who ...

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We need people who are in the classroom sharing these things and many more with teachers. It is not enough to sit outside and be an expert.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Servant-leadership is challenging. The infographic poses questions around the original 10 themes based on Robert Greenleaf's work. Teaching, by its nature, should lend itself to each of the themes.

A nice chart and reminder that as leaders, particularly school leaders, we serve others.

But most principals just don’t know how to implement the kind of PD that matters, having had little preparation or support to do so.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I found the teacher-principal gap was a product of a lack of understanding about professional learning. Teachers want something that helps them in their day-to-day work. I experienced principals wanted something that was efficient and they could do at a whim. For example, Professional Learning Communities do yield benefits when done well, but that does not mean once a month as an add-on to staff meetings or as something done after school. Effective professional learning is a conversation that occurs identifying particular needs and not those imposed on teachers.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Some of these are very old-school. For example, holding others accountable is an external and top-down process. Teachers can and should be expected to be responsible, a more internal process.

As leaders in education wrestle with the dynamic changes in funding, the continued pressures for increased performance, and an ever demanding  need for a quality workforce, they must operate within their means.

 

Shared here are tactics that will assist leaders navigating these challenging times within their workforce. Although focused at school leadership, there are lessons to be learned by leaders across the spectrum

I think #5 is important for workforce and students.

Other than an instructional leader, be an institutional leader to be more effective!
