In his second Teddy Talk episode, NIET Senior Advisor Teddy Broussard shares effective strategies for principals to become more intentional and reflective as they support teachers this school year with clear expectations for success. In "Maintaining Purpose in New Circumstances," Teddy outlines how to create collaborative learning opportunities − either in-person or virtually − that draw on student learning evidence, foster a sense of purpose to inform decisions, and lay out a plan for continued monitoring and adjustment (8:25).
Teddy also discusses key characteristics of collaborative learning (10:45), strategies for observing peers in virtual or in-person learning walks (12:45), and how principals can address their own needs to become more effective school leaders (17:25).
