Insight ADVANCE today announced the launch of a suite of professional learning resources, featuring a new eBook, From “Gotcha” to Growth: Teacher Evaluation Systems That Work. Written by Dr. Michael Moody, the CEO and co-founder of Insight ADVANCE, the ebook offers practical solutions for schools and districts looking to improve their evaluation systems with a research-based approach to put the focus on educators’ professional growth.
Moody, a former educator, instructional coach and Chief Academic Advisor in D.C. Public Schools, begins by laying out the “3 Reasons Why Teacher Evaluations Aren’t Working...Yet.” He then examines the latest research and shares best practices from educators and instructional leaders who have successfully implemented teacher evaluation systems that focus on helping teachers improve. The eBook concludes with five simple steps to support school and district administrators in building their own growth-based evaluation systems.
From “Gotcha” to Growth is Insight ADVANCE’s third eBook, following Feedback Strategies for Coaches & Administrators and A Game Changer: Using Video to Achieve High Performance in the Classroom. All three eBooks are available for download here.
