Effective Conferencing with Low Performing Educators

Participants will review specific supervisory styles and their uses, as well as the components of effective conferences with teachers who struggle, then use that information to participate in authentic conferencing scenarios designed to help participants practice their skills with their colleagues in small groups. Teachers who struggle often have difficulty reflecting on and adjust their practice in response to information gathered during your observations and shared during your conferences with them. Change is challenging, regardless of the research-based, foreseeable and positive outcomes that regularly result from the change. Maintaining a positive and professional relationship while sharing news that’s hard to hear, then charting a course forward takes time and can tax your patience. It is also one primary way to help educators reflective on data about their instruction and change their practice to benefit their students.
