This session is designed to train teachers in the technique of Show Call. Show Call is a type of Cold Call that involves taking students’ written work and displaying it to the class. Champion teachers use it to maximize rigor and accountability for written work, spotlight “bright spots” in student work, and build a culture of revision.
Through analysis of master teachers’ techniques and deep practice, participants in the session will develop understanding and strengthen skills with:
- Purposes of Show Call
- Keys for an effective Show Call
- Planning and executing before, during, and after Show Call.
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 Show Call in action
✓ Facilitator notes for what to say and do for each slide
✓ 9 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
✓ Carefully designed practice activities
✓ Feedback Cheat Sheets—prioritized success points for coaching teachers on Show Call
✓ Participant Handouts for interactive note taking
✓ Next steps to ensure what’s learned in the session carries over into classrooms
