Each item in the Effective Teacher GPA Exercise encourages teachers to reflect on their classroom practices by reviewing the item statement and then using an A to F grade to rate their performance. Read Part 1 and Part 2.
Part 1 grounded the importance of the Effective Teacher GPA reflection using findings from Black and Wiliam (1998) and Marzano (2003). Part 2 highlighted Hattie’s Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement presents the same goal by presenting what “what works best.”
When teachers commit to applying the actions from the Effective Teacher GPA Exercise in their classrooms, they are more likely to regain their passion for teaching and move toward excellence. Participate in this week’s Exercise:
Participate in Part 1’s Exercise and Part 2’s Exercise. We invite you to continue to participate over the next couple weeks. At the end of the Exercise, you can calculate your overall GPA and we will do the same using all poll responses.
