Responsive Classroom Course:
Elementary Grades

Dates: Monday - Thursday, August 14-17, 2017
Times: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Presenter: Kathy Brady, Center for Responsive Schools, Inc. 
Session: 18-221901

Description:  The Responsive Classroom Course is based on the premise that children learn best when they have both academic and social-emotional skills. It is a general approach to teaching, rather than a program designed to address a specific school issue. The Responsive Classroom approach is informed by the work of educational theorists and the experiences of exemplary classroom teachers. It consists of a set of practices that build academic and social-emotional competencies and that can be use along with many other programs. (Adapted from http://www.responsiveclassroom.org)

Classroom practices at the heart of the Responsive Classroom approach include:
• Morning Meeting • Rule Creation • Interactive Modeling • Positive Teacher Language •
• Logical Consequences • Guided Discovery • Academic Choice • Classroom Organization •
• Working with Families • Collaborative Problem Solving •

Register by: Friday, June 23, 2017. Space is limited to 30 participants.
Registration fee: $750 per person includes course book and supplemental material. 
Register online through your own district login, or NRC's SmartPD link: https://app.smartedu.net/nrc/pd/ (link is open)

Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR)
Presenter: Kathleen Spencer 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Kathleen Spencer., RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Seven dates throughout the school year (most are Wednesdays)
          2016: Oct.11, Nov.01, Nov.29, Dec.13, 2016.
          2017: Jan.03, Jan.24, and Feb.14, 2017. 

Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 18-102201

Description: Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, the Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR) course helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the 42-hour ATSR course, participants examine and use both a common language and concept system about teaching to support any state framework. In addition, they develop skills for identifying and providing results-oriented reports and feedback based on observations and analysis of data from other sources including student achievement.

      This program is comprehensively redesigned to meet the requirements of the new teacher evaluation systems used in Massachusetts and other states. To apply the language and concepts to various states’ models, crosswalks have been developed for districts where RBT has already been working.

Outcomes: Practice exercises, video clips, case studies, collegial problem-solving, and fieldwork all
emphasize a range of instructional leadership skills to:

  • Name, explain, and document what expert instructors know and do in many performance
    areas from classroom management to planning standards-based lessons and assessments,
  • Communicate effectively about practices and decisions that impact student learning,
  • Provide standards-based feedback and collegial conferences about teaching practice to
    stimulate reflection and growth, and thereby support and sustain high-quality teaching,
  • Use multiple data sources to assess growth opportunities and help meet new requirements
    for teacher goal-setting and improvement planning.

ASTR also includes a site visit to participants working within a 90-mile radius of NRC.
Participants completing all course requirements will receive 67.5 PDPs, and optional graduate credit.

Audience: K-12 Administrators, department chairpersons
Hours/PDPs: 42 hours; 67.5 PDPs
Cost: $1,395 includes two texts, substantial instructional materials (binder), and lunch each day. The registration fee is the same for NRC member and non-member districts. 
Graduate credit: This course may be taken for 3 Graduate credits (67.5PDPs) through Fitchburg State University for an additional fee of $335 that is paid to "Fitchburg State University" at the first class session.
Register by: August 15, 2017.

Register online through your district's SmartPD link, or NRC's SmartPD Registration link at: https://app.smartedu.net/nrc/pd/.
ATSR is listed in the "Administration & Leadership" category of trainings.

Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR)
Presenter: Kathleen Spencer 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Kathleen Spencer., RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Seven dates throughout the school year (most are Wednesdays)
          2016: Oct.11, Nov.01, Nov.29, Dec.13, 2016.
          2017: Jan.03, Jan.24, and Feb.14, 2017. 

Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 18-102201

Description: Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, the Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR) course helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the 42-hour ATSR course, participants examine and use both a common language and concept system about teaching to support any state framework. In addition, they develop skills for identifying and providing results-oriented reports and feedback based on observations and analysis of data from other sources including student achievement.

      This program is comprehensively redesigned to meet the requirements of the new teacher evaluation systems used in Massachusetts and other states. To apply the language and concepts to various states’ models, crosswalks have been developed for districts where RBT has already been working.

Outcomes: Practice exercises, video clips, case studies, collegial problem-solving, and fieldwork all
emphasize a range of instructional leadership skills to:

  • Name, explain, and document what expert instructors know and do in many performance
    areas from classroom management to planning standards-based lessons and assessments,
  • Communicate effectively about practices and decisions that impact student learning,
  • Provide standards-based feedback and collegial conferences about teaching practice to
    stimulate reflection and growth, and thereby support and sustain high-quality teaching,
  • Use multiple data sources to assess growth opportunities and help meet new requirements
    for teacher goal-setting and improvement planning.

ASTR also includes a site visit to participants working within a 90-mile radius of NRC.
Participants completing all course requirements will receive 67.5 PDPs, and optional graduate credit.
