This one-day, f2f workshop will give administrators (evaluators) an understanding of four conversation models. They will learn which model to apply to extend teachers’ thinking, e.g. coaching, collaborating, consulting, calibrating. Participants will practice moving from one model to another as they recognize the teachers’ capabilities and respond to the teachers’ thinking. Effective communication skills (listening, pausing, paraphrasing and inquiring) will be rehearsed. The workshop will give evaluators confidence and skills necessary to implement the Annual Teacher Evaluation Cycle.

Timeframe: 1 day
