Reimagining Instructional Quality and Coaching

How can we define and refine measures of instructional quality to meet the needs of today’s students?

They explore the rubrics that have traditionally been used to measure instructional practices and advocate for a more culturally responsive approach to observation and coaching.

Thomas also shares insights from her recent work, including collaborations with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, aimed at creating more supportive, equitable, and effective tools for educators.
