Summary

What are three of the most important words that will help teachers grow in their instructional practice? Guess what: It’s not ‘evaluate your teachers’ or ‘use test scores’. The three words are: ‘Start from strengths’. Research both in the field of education and outside of education indicates that when you leverage a person’s strengths to support them, they improve in performance. In this session, participants will experience a mind shift in thinking about the kinds of skills needed to support teachers. Participants will engage in hands-on activities where they learn how to use strengths to support teachers. They will also learn the research on what kind of expertise is necessary to do so.
