2) A Deeper Understanding of the Danielson 2013 Framework for Teaching (sessions on-going)

You will also study authentic artifacts of teaching practice and consider ways to demonstrate your own practice in Domains 1 and 4. Schools are encouraged to send two colleagues as a team to promote professional dialogue and peer support.
  • Who should attend? This day-long session is designed for teachers who have used the Framework as a reflection tool for more than a year, including those teachers involved in the teacher effectiveness pilots and those who have attended previous full day NYCDOE trainings led by the Danielson Group.
