This is one of the better models I have come across. It presupposes a level of professionalism that is refreshing and notes the flexibility required of a teacher to connect with young people.

None of these allow for teaching in isolation. 

Stephen Gwilliam's curator insight, May 20, 2013 8:02 AM

If you had your staff audit themselves and how they saw their peers would you have congruence?  Where is your staff along a continuum in relation to the 8 characteristics? What are you going to stop and start doing?

The Power of Feedback John Hattie and Helen Timperley

Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement, but this impact can be either positive or negative. Its power is frequently mentioned in articles about learning and teaching, but surprisingly few recent studies have systematically investigated its meaning. This article provides a conceptual analysis of feedback and reviews the evidence related to its impact on learning and achievement. This evidence shows that although feedback is among the major influences, the type of feedback and the way it is given can be differentially effective. A model of feedback is then proposed that identifies the particular properties and circumstances that make it effective, and some typically thorny issues are discussed, including the timing of feedback and the effects of positive and negative feedback. Finally, this analysis is used to suggest ways in which feedback can be used to enhance its effectiveness in classrooms.

With increasingly evidence of what really has the best effect on student learning, what strategies are your teachers engaged in that really hit or don't hit the mark?

Indeed high performing schools/jurisdictions need both. Reflect on these issues:
Which of the formative assessment strategies do you implement in your classroom/s?
Black and William (1998) recommend: "Frequent short tests are better than infrequent long ones." Do you agree? Why or why not?

Sir Ken Robinson’s New TED Talk About ‘Education’s Death Valley’

Sir Ken Robinson’s New TED Talk About ‘Education’s Death Valley’ | NG Network | Scoop.it

No stranger to TED, Sir Ken Robinson delivered a talk on "Education's Death Valley" where he outlines 3 principles that are crucial for the mind to flourish. He then goes into how current education culture works against those principles and how a change from a mechanistic mind view of education is required.

One of Ken Robinson's best recent efforts. Witty, concise and accurate! The great 'wrestle' for those of us in schools is how to make this occur. How do we build structures that support great teaching and learning, rather than great teaching and learning trying to flourish in spite of structures and systems. Thanks Karen Rockhold.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 18, 2015 9:05 AM

There is question around current evaluation practices and whether the observations done by principals are the most effective motivator in producing good teaching results. There is very evidence to suggest that incentive pay  or performance based rewards, based on value- add-ons, actually further develop a teacher's skills. Additionally, the contemporary principal, in reality, has very limited time to make teacher observations relevant and meaningful in practice because a good portion of their time is spent on discipline, and operational "stuff". Although observations are a required part of teacher evaluations,  principals need  find other ways to help teacher grow in their profession. One important way is to engage teachers in collaborative cultures, like those associated with professional learning communities, where they can focus on developing instructional practices that improve student learning.
