We are living in dynamic, transitional times, where responding to multiple educational initiatives and programs in a school or district is the norm. How do we respond to change constructively? How do we adapt? How can school leaders and administrators support teachers through change? For this month’s #edchatri moderated Twitter chat, we will be considering the following essential questions:
Q1 What are some of the new initiatives or programs that you are responding to this school year?
Q2 What are some of the major challenges to a smoother change process?
Q3 How can we respond to change constructively?
Q4 How can school leaders and administrators support teachers through change?
Q5 Why is there resistance to change? What kind of resistance is constructive?
Q6 What are some examples of positive change that you have experienced? How did that change process feel?
Q7 How can you support your colleagues through change?
As a launch point, please read A Middle School English Teacher’s Personalized Learning Journey by Cassandra Charles. We look forward to having this conversation with you!
