Whole Group Classroom Leadership Foundations: Engage + Set up for Success
Welcome Buffalo High School Staff!
The purpose of this brief on-demand course is to connect the skills you learned for teaching during a pandemic with the skills you’ll use when returning to in-person teaching with a specific focus on the contexts that were covered in the live Zoom trainings (Engage + Set up for Success) that some staff chose to attend with the Catalyst team. Even if you didn’t participate in those, the materials in this course provide enough information to develop an understanding of the skills. It will also provide common language for moving forward with additional training.
The Catalyst Approach refers to a collection of strategies and ideas developed by Nancy Burns and Jacki Brickman. In addition to the more than 50,000 classroom observations that have driven the research of Nancy and Jacki, their teams continue to engage in more than 7,000 observations annually. Born from our love of teaching children, our passion is to find ways for educators and students to experience less frustration while increasing equity in the classroom. The skills in this course lay the groundwork to refine communication so that educational leaders are even more clear, more predictable, and have even more options to be flexible to meet the varied needs of individual learners.
If this is your first online course experience with us, we recommend starting with some general tips found on the MyCatalyst Help page so you know how our courses work.
