What are your goals for this session?

Goal for the session: Teachers will note the effective teacher moves that advance the learning while they listen to one another’s audio tapes of writing conferences and later when they attend the classroom of the teacher whose school we are visiting.


Evidence of teacher learning: Teachers explained their goal and the strategies they targeted before sharing the audio tapes of their respective students. While listening to each conference all teachers recorded notes on a template designed for this purpose in order to provide feedback to each other following each audiotape. Questions were posed for the conferencing teacher and each teacher addressed the issues presented and noted changes they would make in light of the feedback they received.
