Beginning in Summer of 2014-15, in addition to our new teacher inductionwork, SEWNTP will offer professional trainings for supervisors and effectiveness coaches as well as for all teachers moving forward in their practice.
This Comprehensive Supervision and Evaluation element will focus on Developing Teacher Expertise in two ways:
- Preparing Teachers to set goals, develop meaningful PPG & SLO’s as well as participate in peer teaching discussions.
- Creating Effective Coaches and Supervisors to successfully use coaching language, cycles and tools.
