The Teaching Channel

The Teaching Channel is a fabulous website for "do it yourself" professional learning. The site is cleanly designed and incredibly inviting. It features a collection of short video clips and lesson plans that teachers can use to improve their practice. Specifically, Jim Knight, renowned instructional coach, has many Talking About Teaching videos that show effective coaching sessions with teachers. Watching this content has been incredibly useful to me. Seeing the ways in which he guides discussion has led me to the following conversation: good consultants/supervisors ask good QUESTIONS instead of giving good ANSWERS. One of my favorite videos is embedded below. Enjoy.

  1. Thanks for mentioning Teaching Channel!

    We've added two new tools on our website - a lesson planner tool to help teachers with lesson planning, and a video notes tool for teachers to share time-stamped notes with their fellow educators. Also, all of the videos on www.TeachingChannel.org are now downloadable and embeddable.

    Please feel free to contact us for more information on Teaching Channel videos and resources for teachers. Thanks for spreading the word about Teaching Channel!

    I don't see the embedded video that you like. Am I just overlooking it?

    Thanks,
