Focus on Professional Development: John S. Wash Elementary School

John Wash Elementary School commits time, energy, and resources to professional development. Administrators, teachers, and resource personnel use a common instructional language. Teams collaborate to plan and master explicit, direct instructional practices with precise lesson designs and delivery. Teachers use think-alouds, graphic organizers, and white boards to check for student understanding. English learners are paired with native speakers as peer partners, and teachers motivate all students by switching from teacher talk to partner talk throughout classroom lessons. Read the transcript of Focus on Professional Development. Return to the general introduction to John S. Wash Elementary School
