Virtual Instructional Rounds:
Virtual Instructional Rounds offer campuses an opportunity to grow capacity through virtual classroom observations and synchronous collaboration. During VIRs participants view pre-recorded teaching footage and engage in guided discussion centered on effective practices.
Teachers reserve one hour with a Seidlitz consultant to talk about their needs (WIN “What I Need”) and to ensure that their online lessons are sheltered instruction-ready, using the 7 Steps. These sessions can be a one-time event or ongoing with the same teacher/s.
We will work with teachers one-on-one and in small groups to develop focused and measurable goals to shift towards more student-centered, language-rich instruction. Inspired by the Jim Knight coaching model, our follow up with teachers is immediate with reflective questioning and actionable instructional targets to guide each coaching cycle.
Topics for Online Trainings include:
- Sheltered Instruction
- Bilingual/Dual Language
- Culturally Responsive Teaching
- ESL/Bilingual Certification
- LOTE/Foreign/World Language Teaching
- …and MORE
