Teacher Effectiveness

Reflecting on Your Practice: How Reflection Informs and Shapes Teacher Practice

This presentation addresses how Adult Basic Education, Adult Secondary Education, or English as a second language teachers can understand and use their own research to inform classroom practice. We highlight reflective methods of professional development; the free, online LINCS resource collections; and reflective methods currently used in the field and discuss a relevant professional development plan.

Implementing Induction: Strengthening Teacher Practice (TE)

Mentoring is a well-researched, effective strategy for developing the capacity and confidence of teachers. This session will introduce resources from the Adult Education Teacher Induction Tool Kit, particularly the Mentoring and Instructional Leader Guides, and explore ways programs might implement the tools. These resources help instructional leaders provide guidance and support; experienced teachers perform effectively as mentors, and beginning teachers plan, practice, and reflect on evidence-based instruction.
