Guiding Principles Improved student learning Career-long teacher preparation Collaboration between higher education, P-12, and DPI Community of learners Diversity and equity Performance based program approval and licensure Shared vision of what educators should know and be able to do
WI Educator Standards 10 Teacher Standards 7 Pupil Services Standards 7 Administrator Standards Each Standard has 3 parts Knowledge (Content) What the teacher knows Dispositions (Attitudes) Performances (Skills) What the teacher can do

PDP Guidelines Now let’s talk about the Principles for creating a PDP Purpose of the PDP Licensure Cycle
PDP Guidelines Principles for Creating the PDP To give you the opportunity to: Direct your own growth Work with others to further your vision/goals Address 2 or more of the WI Educator Standards Be a risk taker
PDP Guidelines Purpose of the PDP To serve as a mechanism for license renewal between you, your PDT and the State Superintendent To show how you plan to increase your proficiency based on the WI Educator Standards To show how you plan to improve your pupils’ learning
PDP Guidelines Timeline Year 1: Reflection and work with mentor. Between June 1 and January 1: Submit goal plan, with checklist to PDT for approval of goal. Goal Approval must be to DPI by Jan 1. Years 2-4: Document your annual review. If major revisions to the goal occur in years 2, 3, or 4, submit the changes to the PDT for review by April 1 of the year the changes occur.
PDP Guidelines Timeline Year 5: Submit completed PDP with documentation to the PDT between July 1 and January 15 Year 5: The PDT will review the PDP by April 1. Clarification of discrepancies between the PDT and the candidate will occur by June 1 Year 5: Submit completed application with PDP verification form to DPI to advance to a Professional Educator License
Process for Creating Your PDP I.Before you write the plan: Self-reflection II.Writing the Plan: Components III.Annual Review of the PDP IV.Successful Completion of the PDP
Process for Creating Your PDP I.Self-Reflection Examples of the self-reflection process: Reflection journal logs Student, peer, and parent feedback Collection of student data over time Analysis from classroom observations Examination of critical incidents Rubrics describing components of good teaching based on WI Educator Standards
Process for Creating Your PDP I.Self-Reflection As you self-reflect, look for: Patterns of performance Areas of interest Compelling student or professional needs Effectiveness of teaching based on student learning results
Process for Creating Your PDP Reflection questions: In what areas do I demonstrate strengths of performance? How do I know? What areas challenge my ability to perform in the classroom and with pupils’ learning? What keeps me passionate and proud to be an educator?
Writing the Plan: Components II.Writing the Plan: Components Description of School and Teaching Assignment Goals / Standards to be Addressed
Writing the Plan: Components Writing a Goal Look at your reflection Based on where you are now, what knowledge, skills, and dispositions will advance your current performance? What Standards are represented in your goal?
Writing the Plan: Components Rationale for the Goal Link goal to your self reflection Link goal to your school/teaching situation Goal should promote growth in two or more WI Educator Standards
Writing the Plan: Components Plan for Assessment/Documentation of Achieving the Goal You must indicate how you plan to assess the results of your goal. The assessment must document the results of your efforts to improve your professional performance.
Writing the Plan: Components Plan to meet the Goal: 1.Objectives…are verifiable actions. Their completion should result in goal accomplishment 2.Activities & Timeline…outline actions and steps that lead to the achievement of your objectives/goal 3.Collaboration…takes many forms
Writing the Plan: Review III.Annual Review of the PDP Is the responsibility of the educator If major revision to the plan is made during years 2, 3 or 4, a Annual Review Form must be submitted to the PDT for their review by April 1 of that year and must include Reflection Revision
Writing the Plan: Completion IV.Successful Completion of the Plan A. Summary and reflection statement B. Documentation of successful completion of the plan
Writing the Plan: Completion A.Summary and Reflection Statement includes: Discussion of the achievement of your goal and any changes made to your goal throughout the cycle. An analysis of indicators of growth. Reflection and analysis of your professional growth and how it impacted your students’ learning.
Writing the Plan: Completion B.Documentation of Successful Completion of the Plan Be selective. Choose quality over quantity. Include only 3-5 pieces of evidence of growth over the licensing cycle. This evidence must illustrate the result of the implementation of your goal and the impact on student learning.
PI34 & the PDP “It is up to each individual licensee to develop a PDP. The planning process for writing a PDP ensures that WI educators are broadly informed, deeply committed, and perform actions that will keep WI schools and districts places that motivate and engage all students and will result in enhanced student learning. The PDP is the property of the applicant.” PDP Educator Toolkit, WI DPI.
