How do we increase student achievement? The research is clear that teacher effectiveness is the number one determinant of student success. And every teacher, like every child, is unique and has strengths, weaknesses, goals, ambitions, gaps, and special qualities. On April 7, learn from award-winning principal and author, Pete Hall, how to support teachers’ growth as reflective practitioners through individualized motivation, personalized feedback, customized instructional coaching, and differentiated supervision.

Participants will discuss the application of a strengths-based approach (via the Continuum of Self-Reflection) and get practical tools for drawing the most out of every teacher at a time.

Particularly created to capitalize on the partnership between administrators and instructional coaches, the Building Teacher Capacity model, adopted by districts nationwide, is proven to build teachers' reflective abilities, increase their classroom effectiveness, and raise student achievement—in every content, at every grade, in every demographic.

This session is related to Pete’s book, co-authored by Alisa Simeral, Building Teachers’ Capacity for Success: A Collaborative Approach for Coaches and School Leaders (ASCD, 2008).
