Invest one hour and you will understand how to use observation tools to refresh and reimagine the professional learning possibilities in your school. Using one tool as an example (Interactive Read Aloud), you will be able to envision the role it can play in promoting curriculum coherence, educator collaboration, continuous professional learning and improved literacy instruction.
