Providing Professional Support for Reading First Classroom Teachers:

Who, What, When, Where, How, and Why?

Michael C. McKenna

Georgia Southern University


Today’s Goals Teachers:

  • View PD as part of a comprehensive plan for your school

  • Describe major approaches to PD

  • Discuss how to plan and evaluate PD

  • Apply these ideas to your setting


Continuum of PD Teachers:

Comprehensive plan

aimed at increasing student achievement

Training in

specific skills

or programs

Narrow Broad


A comprehensive PD plan Teachers:

  • Includes cycles of theory, demonstration,

    practice, and feedback

  • Demands collaboration between teachers

    and administrators

  • Must be specific to programs in use

  • Avoids conflicting messages

  • Accounts for the school context

  • Ensures that practice is changed

  • Ensures lasting change in practice by

    demonstrating links to achievement

1. Knowledge-Building Sessions Teachers:

  • Delivered by a variety of educators, including outsiders

  • Topics should begin with “nuts and bolts”

  • Topics should become increasingly focused

  • Should be based on assessed needs of teachers

  • Should be assessed beyond the level of perceptions

  • Must be followed up to encourage implementation

4. Observation and Feedback session?

  • Must be formative, not evaluative

  • Require building a climate of trust by the LC

  • Note taking may involve time spent on activities

  • Note taking may involve domains (expected vs. observed)

  • Note taking should ground conferences

  • Feedback should be quick and specific

  • Feedback can be written or oral

  • Feedback should include positive but sincere comments

  • Conferences should end with an offer made by the LC
