Seven Factors for Successful Instructional Coaching with Jim Knight
Mar 8 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

What are the Seven Factors For Success? They are seven areas that must be engaged to ensure successful coaching.

Without purposeful development and support in all seven areas, your coaching program, whether formal or informal at this point, will not meet its maximum potential, educators will become discouraged, and those who are the most vulnerable—your students— will suffer the most loss.

Join Jim Knight at this NHASCD/NHASP sponsored conference for Instructional coaches, peer coaches, building and district administrators, and classroom teachers, all of whom will benefit from this day-long conference.

Achievement Teams: A Better Approach to PLCs with Steve Ventura
Oct 5 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Achievement Teams™ is an experiential and effective four-step protocol centered around Collective Teacher Efficacy — a shared belief that educators can have a greater impact on student achievement when they work together. Within Achievement Teams, educators look at student data to make decisions about instruction and teaching practices that need to shift to best meet student needs. Achievement Teams ensure continuous improvement and better student outcomes by providing a structure for teachers to collaboratively reflect, identify areas of need, and select optimal instructional approaches to respond to those needs.

This protocol fosters positive relationships, encourages responsible autonomy, and creates professionals who enthusiastically believe they can improve student outcomes through equitable learning cultures.

What You Will Learn

Leave this dynamic learning event ready to:

  1. Implement a four-step collaborative protocol that promotes collective ability and creates conditions that support educators to continuously reflect on and improve their practice

  2. Enable teacher teams to effectively share innovative teaching strategies and learning practices, increasing both collaboration and student achievement

  3. Make the most of collaborative time by clearly defining goals and expectations

  4. Create a replicable, student-centered cycle of evidence-gathering, goal-setting, data interpretation, and decision-making

De-Implementation: Creating the Space to Focus on What Works featuring Peter DeWitt
Oct 26 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

When it comes to school initiatives, more isn’t always better.

Today’s educators are buried under old practices, new ideas, and recommended initiatives. The problem? With such an abundance of strategies, it’s hard to recognize what, if anything, is working.

Before you’re tempted to add just one more idea to the pile, take a step back—and an objective look—so that you, central office leaders, building leaders, and teachers can decide which practices to keep, which to modify, and which to eliminate altogether.

Ineffective practices don’t just waste teacher time; they can have a catastrophic impact on student progress. Use de-implementation to shine a light on the path forward—one where teachers can focus on

what works, and students can focus on learning.
