“These vital strategies can be used by any teacher, no matter what grade level or subject matter. Definitely two days you don’t want to miss.”
-Janice Raymond, Director of Literacy & Title 1, Malden Public Schools
The HILL is delighted to announce an exciting new professional development opportunity this summer in our Enhanced Core Reading Instruction Workshop brought to you in partnership with the Center on Teaching and Learning at the University of Oregon.
“One of the things we were excited about is that they weren’t trying to do this on their own. They found a recognized leader in the HILL who could do this education, who had had success, was driven by data, and had done it in communities and districts that had much greater needs than the districts around here, and had been successful at it.”
As developing a teacher evaluation system becomes a mandate at the state level, administrators who are also conscientious educators strive to comply. It is, however, proving to be quite a challenge for them. I’m a literacy consultant and, for the past three years, I have been working in a district that just became a recipient of its state’s Race to the Top funds. District administrators are getting ready for the next school year by reviewing the teacher evaluation system designed by their state, which provides both formative and summative information on teacher performance.
