1. As you provide some ways to could encourage administrators to monitor learners' progress, holding participants accountable for implementing training into the classrooms, my former principal was amazing at this accountability. She would place the training title on teachers' evaluation forms and assess it when she did "drive-by" visits as well as formal ones.
After all English teachers were trained in adding more movement into their lesson as well as the 6 Traits of Writing, this administrator also ensured teachers' accountability through classroom visits and evidence-based practices. For example, she talked with kids about this content as well, asked to see samples of how it was infused, and also testing questions and results pertaining to the training topics. She wanted samples of students' work that reflected the training in a holistic way to support and affirm the training. She did it, though, in a nonthreatening but firm manner to show teachers that it was an expectation from her, the school, district, and state.
2. As you explore what are some ways to get participants to share what they have learned in trainings/workshops with co-workers to further impact the quality of care offered in the program, the same principal gave all content teachers of the same grade level a common planning period everyday. She expected one say a week to set aside for teachers to share lesson strategies that reflected that training, test questions that were inspired from the training, success stories or brainstorming sessions collaboratively for struggling teachers. This time was called COCO (Collaborate with Co-teachers) was highly successful.
Besides grade level and content level planning and sharing, she also set aside one faculty meeting a month where departments would take turns and share a 20-30 minutes sample lesson to articulate a training model or topic that they were taught. This method was also highly successful.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 10:18 pm ad1c9bdddf>
