As a visual learner good videos make all the difference in the efficacy of my practice. One of the best groups of videos are those in ATLAS (Accomplished Teaching Learning and Schools) a video library of accomplished teaching. These impactful videos include a variety of tagging- a set of standards or frameworks. For instance, ATLAS currenly has tagging for Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards, National Board standards, Deeper Learning Competenciesand edTPA. PreService programs use the videos, and I plan to use them in my coaching as well site PD. Furthermore, the videos are accompanied by teacher commentaries that describe the classroom and student dynamics as well as an analysis of the whole lesson or unit of study- most of which does not appear in the 15 minute videos.

Hi Cheryl! The commentary sounds like an effective feature. What kind of feedback from teachers have you heard about this project?

HI Cheryl! So excited to see you on the RDC! I wanted to use ATLAS during the trial but didn't get a chance. Have you used the videos for your own practice?

My used with teachers was limited this semester- I gained access in April when there was less than 8 weeks of school remaining. However, the two teachers (JH science and JH social studies) found it enlightening. The difference in their practice was subtle: higher level questions, nudge toward critical thinking, student collaboration skills. But these made all the difference with regards to student engagement and the rich dialogue from students. ATLAS will be a more integral part of my work in the next school year. I will keep you posted!
