Kimberly St Clair

Are these the qualities you want to see in your instructional teams? 

  1. Maintain a clear focus

  2. Embrace a spirit of inquiry

  3. Put data at the center

  4. Honor commitments to learners and learning

  5. Cultivate relational trust

  6. Seek equity

  7. Assume collective responsibility

These are the qualities of High Performing Groups as defined by Laura Lipton and Bruce Wellman in Got Data? Now What? Effective teams support students, but they also attract and retain teaching talent.   Are these qualities you want to see in your teams?  If so, consider sending teachers and teacher leaders to our Successful Data Analysis Workshop, where we concentrate on structures and protocols that support your teams to embody these characteristics.
