In this era of high stakes teacher and leader evaluation, common core state standards, the upcoming new student assessments and other changes impacting Title I Schools, developing school-based teacher leaders who are experts in curriculum, instruction, assessment and professional learning is the key to sustainable school improvement. What are the professional development practices and policies that support teacher leaders as they strive to impact student learning through their leadership role with their colleagues? How can the research-based Continuum of Self Reflection framework guide the work of teacher leaders and administrators as they support teachers? What is the leader's role in ensuring that local capacity is built and sustained ? What leadership tools have proven to be useful in supporting school improvement efforts? In this session, participants will examine these questions and apply their learning to the realities of the districts and schools they serve.
