Dr Q Consulting will:
- Conduct a 45 minute observation, once a week, in six week cycles for first year teachers, teachers in their first year with the district, or teachers designated as “needing support” based on RtI-Academic Tier 1 data
- Follow up with the teacher later the same week to provide constructive feedback from the observation in a reflective coaching feedback session, up to 45 minutes long.
- Provide small, simple steps toward improvement to the teacher with the expectation that these steps would be implemented immediately and noticeably seen during next week’s observation.
- Provide weekly feedback to campus administration on the progress of the teacher.
- Use the “waterfall” document from Get Better Faster (Bambrick-Santoyo, 2016) as the primary tool in diagnosing where the teacher needs to begin and focus his/her efforts.
- Move the teacher further down the “waterfall” document weekly over the six week observation cycle.
- Provide observable results in just one week.
