This session is designed to strengthen teachers’ capacity to achieve 100% academic engagement. Through deliberate, concrete actions, champion teachers increase their awareness, project their presence, and respond efficiently and productively to student behavior. Through analysis of master teachers’ techniques and deep practice, participants in the session will strengthen their skills in three key areas:
- Build Radar: Teach yourself to see accurately and efficiently.
- Be Seen Looking: Make it clear to students that you’re looking.
- Back It Up: Be prepared to deal with students who haven’t done what you’ve asked.
Our goal is for you to save time planning a high-quality PD session and dive deep into the small concrete actions that advance your teachers’ skills from good to great. The Plug and Play provides you with:
✓ A fully customizable PowerPoint presentation with embedded videos of Radar in action
✓ Facilitator notes for what to say and do for each slide
✓ 14 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
✓ Carefully designed practice activities
✓ Feedback Cheat Sheets— prioritized success points for coaching teachers on Radar
✓ Participant Handouts for interactive note taking
✓ Next steps to ensure what’s learned in the session carries over into classrooms
