Learning Labs: Focus on Instruction
Half day sessions (one AM and one PM)
A host teacher volunteers to open up his/her classroom for the observation of a lesson that was developed based on current learning provided by SLC. The host teacher collaborates with an SLC facilitator during a coaching day (or a distance coaching session) to prepare to teach a lesson based on previous SLC PD. There are two lab sessions per day. Each includes a pre-brief (45-60 minutes), an observation (50-80 minutes), and a debrief (90 minutes). Each lab session can accommodate at most 10 participants. The host teacher needs to be available during the pre-brief and the debrief.
