Refining Pedagogy
More than ever, we see the importance of supporting our teachers no matter what stage of their career they're in. We know that supporting our experienced teachers is integral to teacher retention and student success. Teachers with more than three years of experience or those who have completed our Practical Pedagogy series are invited to participate in our new series: Refining Pedagogy. At the beginning of our series, participants will work with facilitators to set a professional learning goal that will direct the topics of the series. Throughout our sessions together, we'll make progress on those goals by moving through each of the domains of Danielson's Framework for Teaching to not only support teachers' professional development but also to increase their effectiveness.

AA #1448: Teacher Evaluation Retraining: Danielson Domains 2 & 3
Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. This Academy focuses on Domains 2 and 3 of Charlotte Danielson's 2013 Framework for Teacher. This course requires participants to view teaching, record data according to the Professional Practice rubric, and participate in mock evaluation conferences as an evaluator, teacher or observer. Participants will be able to: • assign components of acts of teaching to the Danielson evaluation rubric with a high degree of accuracy • provide constructive and supportive feedback to teachers based on data from observations of teaching • control for bias when evaluating teachers • conduct effective evaluation conferences that utilize data from the evaluation rubric in a way that delivers constructive and supportive feedback, controls for bias, gives teachers the opportunity to deliver instruction that improves student achievement; and • determine levels of proficiency in Domains 2 and 3 which correspond to the master trainers’ score, indicating a level of inter-rater reliability

AA #1451: Teacher Evaluator Competency Skill Building for Pre-Qualified Teacher Evaluators
Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability, and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. Administrators who evaluate teachers must also recognize and control for bias when conducting an evaluation and determining results. School districts in Illinois must provide professional development to administrators to strengthen these skills on a sustained basis. The course focuses on Domains 1 and 4, and is intended to move administrators who have passed the ISBE evaluator training, and are very familiar with Charlotte Danielson's 2011/2013 Framework for Teaching, from compliance to competency. This course requires participants to pre-conference, record data according to the Professional Practice rubric, and participate in mock pre/post conferences as evaluator, teacher, or observer. Participants will also be expected to have a high degree of inter-rater reliability when they determine a final rating based on the evidence gathered for Domains 1 and 4

The Basics of Teaching Reading: Additional Skills (For Non-Reading Teachers)
When a student struggles reading a word and asks you to explain the rules governing its spelling patterns, do you ever reply with something like the following: “English is tricky” or “It's just the way it is; you just have to learn it?” If so, this session is for you! We will work to demystify and unlock the English language by highlighting systematic patterns that aren’t always apparent. (If you missed the first session, don’t worry. We will review its contents before starting.) After that review, we will learn additional decoding patterns beyond what was covered in the first session to enable you to provide assistance for more complex words and patterns. By the end of session two, you will have the necessary confidence and knowledge to objectively explain many spelling patterns of a large proportion of words in the English language.

The Basics of Teaching Reading: Dyslexia and English Language Learners (For Non-Reading Teachers)
The purpose of this session is to support educators by addressing the needs of dyslexic and multilingual learners. To begin, we will briefly discuss the origins and challenges associated with dyslexia and the specific needs of multilingual students learning English. We will then shift to practical strategies and practices for the classroom with a focus on the basics of English pronunciation and vocabulary acquisition. To that end, we will learn how the various sounds of English are produced as well as review several virtual tools to aid in teaching the various aspects of vocabulary instruction: word parts, word families, dictionary use, word frequency, and commonly occurring neighboring words. By the end of the session, participants will not only have a theoretical understanding of the needs of their students but also the knowledge and resources to instruct them more effectively.
