20 School-Based Beginning Teacher Support
To ensure success for your new teachers, your school should provide training and support in the following areas: Survival Skills – School Tour, Key Personnel etc. School Handbook – Policies, Procedures, Vision Special Programs - Curriculum Technology – Pinnacle, Progress Reports etc. Observations – Summative/Formative Teacher Assessments - IPDP

21 Formative Observations
Are non-judgmental Are individual-oriented Foster professional growth Have criteria defining desired professional performance Are diagnostic and identify areas for improvement Utilize feedback for support and corrective changes Use reflection to determine whether purposes have been met Are driven by the Individual Professional Development Plan

22 Goldhammer’s Model The five stages of the clinical supervisor model:
The pre-observation conference (set the contract) The observation & Analysis (capture and review the data) The strategy session (make the data intelligible with logical relationships) The post-conference (operational plan for supervision) The post-conference analysis (mentor reflection- our conscience)

23 Pre-observation Conference Procedures
Identify session objectives and relevant situational information Identify and review areas of focus to be given special attention: behaviors to maintain / increase, behaviors to reduce / eliminate, strategies / activities to explore and try Select observational method Agree on observation time and logistics

24 The STEP Process STEP is designed to remind the CE of the steps needed to analyze and synthesize the data gathered from an observation. Select the data Think about likely DP reactions Enumerate acceptable solutions Plan the conference

25 Data Analysis and Strategy Procedures
Construct a data display Does not have to be anything drastic Could be something as simple as a tally chart, graph, or table of notes Identify related patterns of behavior Make comparisons with previous observations Determine if criteria for success were satisfied Make summary statements Plan conference strategies

26 Post Observation Conference Procedures
Review the pre-observation conference agreements Discuss data and identifiable patterns with the DP Guide the DP to identify behaviors to maintain / increase and reduce / eliminate Discuss strategies or activities to explore and try Specify and document everyone’s responsibilities Schedule next observation or conference

27 Interpersonal Communication
Convey empathy, sincerity and positive regard for the DP (three core conditions for quality IC) Actively listen, respond and facilitate communication (Burke’s Model) Utilize questioning strategies Clarification Perception checking Empathy Concrete examples
