The Program in Instructional Leadership is for congregational school leaders who want to strengthen the teaching and learning in their settings through participating in a Professional Learning Community. This group of school leaders comes together over a two year period to strengthen the vision and skill for teacher development in their programs, to learn and practice the core skills of mentoring teachers, to share experiences, and to identify and discuss key challenges and opportunities in the field of Jewish supplementary education. Participants in the program will gain a deep understanding, along with the necessary skills, to motivate, inspire, and empower teachers to improve the teaching and learning in their supplemental school classrooms. As part of the program, the instructor visits each participant’s site to co-observe a teacher, and then reflect on the observation and its follow-up. Topics include Instructional Core Triangle; Our Stance; Map of Pedagogical Knowledge; Classroom Observations/Naming & Framing; Pre and Post Observation Meetings; Providing Feedback; Coaching; Reflective Questioning; Text Study; Co-Planning; Co-Teaching; Classroom Walk-Throughs; Creating a Professional Learning Community.
