Description

Authors: Brenda Augusta, Ruth Gauvreau & Gerry Hector (Lesson Study)
Authors: Lori Jeschke, Dave Carter, Cheryl Shields & Deborah Bidulka (Residency)

If you are an educator interested in professional learning as a teacher leader, a professional development leader, a school-based leader, or a system leader, the authors invite you to read their stories and consider the ways in which you might adapt them to work in your particular context.

These authors, from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, address the challenges and opportunities faced by teachers and leaders with two companion books that highlight the connection between assessment for learning principles and professional development structures.

The series consists of two books:

Lesson Study: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice

Lesson Study: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice focuses on an actual account of how a school staff built their professional development framework on the cornerstones of assessment for learning. Through the structure of the lesson study, discover how these educators:

  • linked collaborative planning with creating a clear learning destination
  • described modelling and observing through the lens of identifying quality
  • debriefed and revised lessons as a process of giving and receiving descriptive feedback
  • collected triangulated evidence of their own learning

 

Residency: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice

Residency: Powerful Assessment and Professional Practice is an account of how a school district turned the implementation of a common progress report for Grades 1 – 9 into an even deeper change – a shift in assessment, learning pedagogy, and practice across their entire system. Through the structure of a residency model, learn how these educators:

  • walked alongside their adult and student learners
  • set the stage for the impending change
  • embedded collaborative professional learning in the classroom
  • supported growth of practice
  • reflected on feedback to feed learning forward
  • sustained the change
