The Structure and Design Matter
This course is for new instructional leaders or for those who are using a new instrument for evaluation and/or support.

As an instructional leader, I can:
- Develop strategies to deconstruct my district’s instructional framework, leading to a deeper understanding of the expectations in each category/indicator/standard.
- Distinguish between performance ratings using key levers.
Choose 1 classroom practice indicator. Prepare for a conversation with a teacher to explain the following:
- the overarching intent of the indicator
- the key lever between performance ratings
- how student outcomes, behaviors, or dispositions have been integrated
