Providing DataProviding data, both qualitative and quantitative, in a variety of forms supports group members in constructing shared understanding from their workData have no meaning beyond that which we make of them Shared meaning develops from collaboratively exploring, analyzing, and interpreting data
Paying Attention to Self and Others
Meaningful dialogue and discussion are facilitated when each group member is conscious of self and othersEach group member is aware of what (s)he is saying and how it is said as well as how others are responding. Pay attention to learning styles when planning, facilitating, and participating in group meetings and conversations.
Presuming Positive Intentions
Meaningful dialogue and discussion occurs with the assumption of others intentions as positivePositive intentions prevent unintentional put-downs. Positive intentions in speech are noticed
Self-Assess Your Collaboration Skills
Pose a Question it requires enormous skill to ask a question in such a way that it does not suggest providing direction.Talk about Teaching, Charlotte Danielson
Refer back to inquiry exercise. Talk about the role of a coach not being directive or solving problems. 18Invitational Inquiry
Inquiry ExerciseReview the data and the Inquiry Responses. How do they model the practice of invitational inquiry?DataInquiryThe objective is clearly written on the board in Ms. Ms 5th grade classroom. She begins the lesson with a ten-minute lecture on the land rush using a timeline and US map for visual reference, with no mention of the learning objectives. What were some indicators that your students were clear about the objective and the expectations for learning in this lesson?
As you were describing the land rush, what were some indications of students understanding the content and connections to the posted objective?Handout P 86 Learning-Focused Supervision. Talk about these responses and how they are different from out typical conversations with teachers. Practice additional responses.20Collaborative Observation ProcessRefer back to Collaborative Process The Next section will focus on planning and reflection conference skills. 21Continuum of Learning-Focused Interaction

Bloomboard Feedback and Next Steps
Meaningful Change in Practice If we want teacher evaluation systems that teachers find meaningful and from which they can learn, we must use processes that not only are rigorous, valid, and reliable, but also engage teachers in those activities that promote learningnamely self-assessment, reflection on practice, and professional conversation.
