By offering guidelines for safely challenging assumptions, building
common language, and giving and receiving feedback on educational
practices, protocols play a vital role in helping educators have
professional learning conversations that lead to improved student
learning. In Protocols for Professional Learning Conversations,
author Catherine Glaude provides a variety of protocols designed to
create a culture that encourages productive conversations between
and among teachers and administrators. Twenty-eight sample
protocols guide educators through a variety of situations. These
protocols navigate conversations in a way that ensures all parties
play an active part in improving student achievement, teacher
effectiveness, and assessment methods. The protocols are designed
Provide ample time for reflection
Promote deep listening
Allow participants to learn from others' challenges and
Help participants to gather feedback to improve teacher
practices and student learning
Improve and focus action research
Help participants analyze the effectiveness of assessments
Glaude acknowledges the sensitive nature of these conversations
and outlines sample ground rules for conducting learning
conversations, providing feedback, and receiving feedback. She also
provides guidelines that enable participants to customize ground
rules to address the organization's individual challenges.
The protocols presented in this book progressively build
comfort and a climate that welcomes constructive, collaborative
conversations among participants by first looking at a common
reading assignment and gradually building to more advanced
conversations that focus on improving individual practice as
participants become more comfortable with this collaborative
process. Guidelines for creating and adapting your own advanced
protocols are also provided.
