Problem of Practice: Use recorded and/or live video to guide teachers in being more responsive to student needs

The intent of John Willis’ project is to have teachers put more focus on high-yield/impact activities through intentional, reflective conversations with peers. He worked with all levels across the district as a pilot to explore how to teach teachers to have reflective conversations. One principal gave him permission to implement at his K-5 school, but it was not determined if he would work with whole staff or just select a group of teachers. Funds from the Chidley Fund Academy Scholarship provide materials and other support.
