Dr. Jeanette McCollum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Dr. Tweety Yates, NCQTL & University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Dr. McCollum and Dr. Yates describe the tiered framework they used, over a four-year period, to plan and deliver professional development. Activities included teacher institutes, small group meetings, and coaching. On the call, they focus on how use of the framework was reflected in changes in professional development over time. They also highlight how it supported the use of individualized classroom coaching. Examples from classrooms at the lowest and highest tiers show how coaching was guided by differences in teachers’ learning.
