MASSP, in partnership with the University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership, offers this two-day Targeted Feedback Institute.

The Targeted Feedback Institute supports principals, teachers and central office leaders in learning the skills for giving feedback and creating a culture that centers on growth of teacher practice and improvement of student learning. Participants learn how to develop feedback that responds to a teacher’s identified learning needs/goals.

Essential Questions

  • How do we use observations and feedback to change our practice?
  • How do practitioners use a cycle of inquiry to foster teacher growth?
  • How do we shift a culture to ongoing support for teacher learning?

Principals, teachers and a central office leader who supervises principals should attend the institute as a team. The institute requires that participants use a research-based instructional framework to inform the observation and feedback process. The process itself can be used with any instructional framework, including CEL’s 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning™, Danielson’s Framework for Teaching, Marshall's Teacher Evaluation Rubric, Marzano’s Art and Science of Teaching Framework, and the Thoughtful Classroom Teacher Effectiveness Framework.
