Making Professional Learning Systemic to Improve Teacher Effectiveness
Teacher effectiveness is difficult to define for accountability purposes because what we want teachers to achieve or provide to students is vast, changing, contested, and difficult to measure. In October 2013, Angela Minnici presented to the Campaign for High School Equity on making professional learning systemic to improve teacher effectiveness. This presentation explores the difference between teacher quality and teacher effectiveness and describes the indicators of teacher effectiveness. Minnici discusses job-embedded professional learning and how to connect professional learning to teacher evaluation.
