New Senior/Team Leads and Principals (and supervisors) will use the scope and sequence of teacher leader development to reflect on their practice as a leader identifying strengths and areas of growth then create a learning plan. Review learning that is addressed in required professional learning and ensure your plan supports job-embedded implementation of content that is introduced through structured learning and addresses content that is not included.
Required Learning: New Senior/ Team Leads will engage in a sequence of structured learning designed to develop the skills that are essential for success in year one. This common experience will support a consistent expectation across the district for what Senior/Team Leads know and can do. The structured learning will be aligned to the scope and sequence skills described in column C: developing skills related to 1:1 observation/feedback and coaching. This will include sessions to support developing an identity as a leader, leading Data Driven Instruction, Coaching, and Observation/Feedback. In addition to structured professional learning experiences, new Senior/Team Leads will participate in a cohort experience designed to support individual application and practice of skills as well as social emotional support. Refer to more information about the cohort structure.
In order to build a partnership with principals (and supervisors) in the development of teacher leaders, all required sessions will include
- a look for document that will include the key points of session content (including handouts and slides)
- a description of what it looks like for participants to apply learning from the session, and
- suggestions for job-embedded supports that principals (and supervisors) can use to support implementation and refinement of new learning.
These documents will be housed in Schoology in addition to online content: Join with the access code: NGWCM-FCC37. Senior/Team Leads will join this Schoology Course to complete required content. We encourage principals (and supervisors) to also enroll in this course in order to support this partnership.
