Effective teachers are made, not born.

What’s the role of talent?

Do you agree or disagree?

What’s the role of deliberate practice?

Most people are satisfied with competence, and never strive for expertise.

Do you agree or disagree?

Even small increments in teacher effectiveness can have a positive effect on student achievement.

an 8% average improvement in student achievement

10 years

a 2% improvement in teaching skillful-ness per year



“…it is reasonable to expect all teachers to increase their expertise from year to year.”

What must a district or school do?

  • Develop a common language of teaching.

  • Provide opportunities for focused feedback and practice.

  • Provide opportunities for observing and discussing effective teaching.

  • Require individual teacher growth and development plans on a yearly basis.

A Hierarchy of Data Types

  • Teacher self-perception data

  • Teacher self-observation data

  • Observation data from peers, instructional coaches, supervisors

Teachers score themselves on a rubric or scale for the various components of the model.

Growth Mindset

  • This is not the same as teacher evaluation

  • This is about reflection and working to improve.

  • Nobody gets all 3s and 4s

Stages to Learning a Strategy

  • Cognitive

  • Shaping

  • Autonomous


  • Teacher is made aware and gathers information about the strategy.

  • May observe or read about the execution

  • Corresponds to Not Using (0), and move to Beginning (1) as awareness grows


  • Teacher begins to use the strategy.

  • May contain significant errors, but improves through deliberate practice

  • Corresponds to Beginning (1) with omissions or errors and to Developing (2) with improvement


  • Teacher performs the strategy with ease and fluency.

  • Focus is on the strategy’s effect on student learning and adaptations are made to fit situations or students

  • Corresponds to Applying (3) and Innovating (4)


  • Refer to table 3.2 on page 38

  • What are the major differences between a rating of 2 (Developing) and 3 (Applying) on the scale provided?

Self Audit

  • Refer to Appendix B beginning on page 185.

  • Self reflect on each of the elements – keep in mind the scale – particularly the difference between (2) Developing and (3) Applying.

  • Make sure to review the teacher and student evidence.

  • Submit your ratings on the google form.
