Trust-Based Observations Training


The normal training consists mostly of spending an intensive week practicing by doing over and over again. We work with you and your school leaders, exhaustively teaching and preparing you to successfully and confidently implement Trust-Based Observations. Leaders progress from feeling a little overwhelmed on Monday to proudly saying, “I got this,” on Friday.

If you purchase, a typical training week goes as follows:


  • Begin building our own trusting relationships
  • Go over the observation form in detail
  • Observe each other teaching mini 10 minute lessons
  • Model a reflective conversation
  • Practice reflective conversations
  • Reflect on the reflective conversations

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Morning:

  • Observe teachers as a group,
  • Reflect together on the observations, basically as peer-to peer formative assessment and teaching others
  • Take turns engaging in reflective conversations
  • Reflect on the reflective conversations

Friday Afternoon:

  • Connecting Professional Development Communities, Action Research Goals, and the Teacher Self-Assessment Rubric
  • Summative Evaluation
  • Organization and Managing Time
