Modeling Effective Teaching

You've asked your staff to practice teaching during PD meetings; they're doing so in authentic classroom-like environments; and they're hungry for, open to, and proficient at giving feedback!

But hold - it's time to put your money where your mouth is, Principal Sweeney. It's time to model effective teaching. Before you set your staff off to practice an instructional move, you need to show them how to do it. After all, some of your staff are reticent about role-playing (or just very sleepy by the time PD hour roles around). They're going to need you to bring the energy, give them a decent benchmark, and break the ice.
