Advancing the Three-Minute Walk-Through free pdf 'This book provides the most informed and transformative blueprint known for building the capacity of teacher coaches and supervisors. Districts across Texas are using the Downey "Walk-Through" to break through the barrier of the isolated classroom and provide a platform for improved dialogue about teaching and learning' - Susan P. Holley, Associate Executive Director, Texas Association of School Administrators. In 2004, "The Three-Minute Classroom Walk-Through" introduced educators to the Downey Walk-Through, a practical approach to coaching and supervision that is now widely accepted and used. Offering an expanded examination of the Downey Walk-Through, this sequel to the bestseller focuses on the second part of the walk-through - the reflective follow-up conversation - and clarifies many of the common misconceptions and misapplications of the approach. The authors illustrate how leaders can use observations from the walk-through to engage in professional conversations and encourage teachers to reflect on and improve their practice. Offering extended examples, activities, and guidelines for changing schools one teacher at a time, this resource shows school leaders how to: provide effective follow-up discourse without criticizing or demoralizing teachers- build collegial and respectful relationships with faculty members- help teachers see their power to become continuously improving professionals- and, foster a collaborative process between headteachers, teachers, and other instructional leaders.
