Resources to Grow Your Teaching Practice

  • Framework for Effective Teaching
    Below are some helpful resources that can be used to support your growth throughout the year in Observation and Professionalism

    New Teachers
    The Playbook for Early Career Teacher Success to empower anyone who is coaching new teachers across the district. The Playbook offers clear guidance on the Gateway Skills that early career teachers should focus on first, and a clear outline of DPS’ Coaching Steps and Coaching Moves to help teachers make quick, measurable improvement toward our expectations for effective teaching and student learning.


    Student Perception Survey

    The Student Perception Survey (SPS) provides teachers and school leaders with a unique perspective on teachers’ educational practice as experienced by students. Teachers and school leaders can use SPS data to better understand students’ experiences, and then reflect on strengths and growth areas aligned to the SPS constructs, LEAP framework, and professionalism framework to improve practice and help every child succeed.
