Campus Visits

Staffs learn best practices through on-site modeled lessons, guided planning, and data analysis. Intensive, small group work with teacher teams result in a jump-start paradigm shift for the entire school.

On-Campus Lesson Study

Job-embedded, individualized professional development is the most effective way to raise teacher performance. Robyn's campus visits are completely customized to suit the staff's needs. Most requested experiences:

Grade level teams participate in lesson study sessions in which they observe a demonstration lesson, debrief about the characteristics of an effective lesson, and identify a specific, personal professional development goal. 

Targeted lesson planning with individual teachers or grade level teams involve rigorous, content-rich discussions that highlight sound instructional practices. 

Structured, focused walk-throughs, open-ended, multi-level explorations that can be replicated in classrooms, individual staff conferences, leadership vision meetings, and staff meetings. 

Pre-visit consultations with school administration, customized lessons to meet teachers’ specific needs, and follow-up debriefing sessions ensure a customized, razor-focused, motivating, and fully successful experience for the entire staff. 


Sequential Observations: Focused Professional Growth

Every teacher needs objective, non-evaluative support. Prior to this campus visit, administration shares the instructional goals for the staff. Based on these outcomes, a pre-visit letter is sent to teachers clearly outlining expectations. During the visit, teachers are observed during math instruction, followed by a debriefing session. The observation is reviewed, along with commendations and thought-provoking questions that will guide instructional upgrades. The process is repeated the very next day for best retention of skills and strategies. The individualized attention for each teacher, along with immediate feedback and follow-up, ensures maximum growth!
