Teacher team reflection

Reflecting on past practice can help teachers gain insight into what was successful and how they can continue to strengthen their practice. In addition, reflecting as a team can serve to deprivatize practice and strengthen a culture of professional learning. This 60-90 minute protocol that accompanies the Handbook for Professional Learning guides teacher teams through reflecting on their individual growth and next steps and then identifying patterns across their team around areas of growth, areas for continued growth, and what future support- including professional learning opportunities- would be most beneficial. This protocol can serve as a part of or precursor to a formal professional learning needs assessment.
