Professional Reading Protocols in a PD Setting – Six-part series
In shared leadership, Guiding Coalition (GC) members should begin to assume responsibility for learning and presenting strategies like these, first to the GC, then applying them during professional reading with the whole staff. Teacher leaders unused to providing professional development for colleagues may be more comfortable presenting as partners rather than solo.
Facilitated reading and discussion of professional material is an excellent method for a principal to use for building shared knowledge among staff members for continuous instructional improvement. Each approach to reading and sharing out has different advantages and disadvantages. Choose among them, based on your staff’s readiness, and the nature of the material. In this six-part series, the strategies presented include:
- Part I: Full vs. Abbreviated Jigsaw
- Part II: Reading Cascade
- Part III: “Final Word” Discussion Protocol
- Part IV: “Chunked and Timed” Protocol
- Part V: Partner Reading
- Part VI: Use of Margin Notes and Varying Levels of Sharing Out
