Residency: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice is an account of how a school district turned the implementation of a common progress report for Grades 1 – 9 into an even deeper change – a shift in assessment, learning pedagogy, and practice across their entire system. Through the structure of a residency model, learn how these educators:
walked alongside their adult and student learners
set the stage for the impending change
embedded collaborative professional learning in the classroom
supported growth of practice
reflected on feedback to feed learning forward
sustained the change
If you are an educator interested in supporting professional learning and systemic change as a teacher leader, a professional development leader, a school-based leader, or a system leader, the authors invite you to read their story and consider the ways in which you might adapt it to work in your particular context.,/p>
Residency: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice is the second in a series of books for teachers and leaders that highlights the connection between assessment for learning principles and professional development structures.
