the goal of the kentucky leadership networks
The Goal of the Kentucky Leadership Networks

“Ensure that every participant has a clear understanding of how to implement/support the implementation of the KCAS within the context of highly effective teaching, learning, and assessment practices so that all Kentucky students have the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to be successful and prepared for college and/or career.”

targets for september
Targets for September
  • I can make connections with our work in MLN and the Teacher Professional Growth and Effectiveness System
  • I can find evidence of engineering effective discussions and questioning using language from CHETL and TPGES 3b.
  • I can use resources to deepen my own understanding of content standards through the lens of the practice standards and can lead others to develop their understanding in this way.
  • I can use Formative Assessment Lessons as a vehicle for effective teaching and learning and can lead other teachers to use FALs effectively.
  • I can reflect on my district leadership team and learn from others.

digging into the tpges
Digging into the TPGES
  • Take 5 minutes to read through pages 1 and 2 in the Framework.
  • Numbered Heads: Count off 1-4 at your table, then read the domain that corresponds to your number.
    • Highlight words, phrases, intent that all with the Wordles
    • Have discussion with your table group about each domain so that everyone has a general idea about each domain.
  • Read your given vignette, determine a domain evidenced and capture language from the Framework that matches
  • Based on the domain you selected for your vignette, move the corner for discussion of that domain and each of the vignettes
  • Return to your table and debrief conversations
  • Be sure to use Today’s Meet to comment.

The TPGES is just another thread that runs through the fabric of our work around improving the INSTRUCTIONAL CORE—the interactions of teachers and students around content. We are weaving the threads (standards, leadership, CHETL, assessment literacy, Formative Assessment Lessons, and PGES) together to have a strong fabric or net that SUPPORTS STUDENTS

let s consider one component of the tpges framework
Let’s Consider One Component of the TPGES Framework:
  • Take a few minutes to read through Domain 3, Section b, individually at your table.
talking chips strategy
Talking Chips Strategy
  • Respond to the following:
  • “After reading component 3b, in what ways does a highly effective teacher engineer effective discussions, questions, and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning?”
  • IMPORTANT: Each participant has 2 chips; take turns speaking in response to the prompt, but only after everyone uses a chip can participants share again.
  • Have ONE recorder for each table.
chunking information
CHUNKING information
  • From the recorder’s notes, CHUNK your table’s BIG IDEAS into categories or sub-topics and illustrate on chart paper.
one stay others stray
One Stay—Others Stray
  • One person from each group will stay to answer/clarify for others while the rest of the team strays around the room to “steal” ideas from others.


  • Whole group shares CHUNKS/BIG IDEAS from around the room
  • Look for evidence of effective questions, discussions, and tasks
  • Look for evidence of effective questions, discussions, and tasks
effective questioning discussion
Effective Questioning + Discussion
  • Leads students to . . .
  • Deeper understanding of content
  • Rethinking hypotheses and viewpoints
  • Making connections
  • Effective questioning also . . .
  • Sets the stage for engaging discussions
connections to chetl
Connections to CHETL…
  • Where is the language in the CHETL document that relates to the language in the TPGES Framework? Site Examples at your table.

  • Before we meet in November, you will be expected to peer observe—looking specifically for evidence of the characteristics of effective questioning and engineering effective discussions.
  • OR, if you choose, you may video yourself teaching and use the same document to find evidence of the characteristics in your own teaching. Share the analysis with a peer.
