Our training is more than talk and listen. We show teachers new teaching techniques, and then demonstrate how to use them with students in the classroom.
Learn Why Most PD is Not
as Effective as It Could Be
One-time professional development is not effective. Research shows that
training must occur repeatedly over time, supported with
coaching and feedback. (Joyce and Showers 1987)
What Clients Say
Explicit Direct Instruction makes students accountable. They see now that school is a place to work and learn and play, and they love it. Because even though it is hard, they are doing well.
All of our PLC meetings start by looking at data, including classroom walkthrough assessments of EDI strategies. Silvia Ybarra helped us calibrate during walkthroughs to develop a common language and credibility district-wide.
EDI is very concrete. You can walk into a classroom and recognize it right away. It enables us to give much better feedback to teachers.
EDI was the impetus for all of the progress at Sanger Unified
Congratulations DATAWORKS! A colleague of mine is super impressed with a new teacher she has employed who came from one of the WA schools you worked in last year. I am a Board Member at this Perth school and I watched the teacher in action yesterday. The impact of your instruction is apparent watching her teach! What a significant effect you are having on Australian educators.
