A snapshot of JP's unique PD


A picture is worth a thousand words-so a video must be worth thousands of words! We think

a good way to introduce you to what JP does is to show you. The first part of the video you

are about to view is a 6 minute segment of a 60 minute video entitled High Quality Vocabulary

Development in the Classroom. This is 1 video in a set of 3 designed to present practical and

evidenced based strategies to teachers. Just as importantly, they are immediately transferrable

to classroom use.


The other 2 videos in this series are Strategies that Allow Students to Visualize and Verbalize

Thinking and Increasing Rigor in Questioning to Promote Higher Order Thinking Skills. This

particular 3 tape series addresses the critical common core standard for our students being able to respond to rigorous questioning in literature

and non-fictional material.


The second section of our video demonstrates JP’s Responsive Coaching model. This is a 5 minute snippet of a 45 minute

classroom coaching session. As Joyce and Stallings research strongly indicates, pre-service

is not the essential element in increasing the effectiveness of teachers’ skills. Often teachers

finish a professional development session, go back to the classroom, and never attempt to

use any of the strategies they just learned. Effective and consistent side by side classroom

coaching is absolutely the key ingredient in ensuring that teachers are transferring their newly

acquired skills in the most effective way for the students in that particular class. JP’s Responsive Coaching model, developed over a 25 year period, customizes all our

professional development to meet the needs of each individual

teacher and student.


With a sense of urgency for our mission, we approach all JP professional development with one goal in mind: increasing the ability and effectiveness of the teacher (link to teacher

effectiveness page) so that, in turn, our students feel successful in their learning.
