  1. Toolkit for Differentiated Professional Development: Looking to personalize professional development in your organization or improve the impact of it but not sure where to start? Check out the Professional Development Toolkit as a beginner’s guide to planning effective professional development.
  2. Professional Development Alignment Tool: Far too often the professional development that educators sit through isn’t aligned with the practices they’re charged with implementing. By intentionally planning for PD that is aligned with data-driven improvement goals we can improve the capacity of practitioners and outcomes for students.
  3. Accountability Planner LWL Template: Support your project management and the challenge of meeting deadlines by providing your team with the structure to do so and formalizing the process.

Instructional Leadership Weekly Planner: This tool is to help educational leaders make effective use of their time and focuses on helping school level leaders get into classrooms, provide feedback, and improve their instructional leadership ability.

  7. Critical Feedback Tool: Learning to receive and act on critical feedback in a productive manner is an essential skill in professional growth.  Without a planned set of coordinated actions and practice, leaders run the risk of being unable to accept critical feedback, shutting down when critical feedback is received, or impacting the way he or she is coached for future development. Use this tool to help you receive feedback more effectively and provide it in the same manner.

  12. Instructional Leadership Walk Through Tracker: Students aren’t the only ones who need their progress monitored. Start a friendly competition as an admin team or with fellow principals and leaders and track your walk-throughs, calibrate your feedback, and share patterns and emerging themes based on your observations with staff. This works best if you can start with one to two focused instructional practices. Be sure to clearly define what acceptable implementation looks like, provide a model for teachers, and then go observe and provide high-quality feedback as they work to incorporate the practice into their instruction. Post the weekly results where it’s visible to all. It will hold the team accountable and create a transparent environment for committment and growth. Download it below!
