Team Meetings

Team meetings are lesson planning sessions that:

  • Develop language accommodations for assessments and assignments for students at different language acquisition levels
  • Assess student work with a language lens
  • Use a protocol to formatively assess student work.

Lesson Studies

During a lesson study, teacher teams:

  • Plan a lesson together with clear language and content objectives, learning activities, and formative assessment
  • Develop measurement tools to assess the effectiveness of the lesson
  • Invite one teacher on the team to teach the lesson while the other team members gather formative assessment data
  • Debrief the lesson as a team and make plans for next steps based on the formative assessment data
