Classroom Observations
Timperley (2013) 

Routine Experts  
Teachers transmit content and skills to students and give them opportunities to respond to that knowledge and practise these skills

Adaptive Experts 
Teachers who focus on 
  • promoting valued outcomes for each learner
  • continual learning professional 
  • promoting outcomes for each learner
  • know each learner 
  • find content or way of teaching them that will help them
  • ongoing inquiry to advance how their student outcomes
  • adapt their teaching for every learner
  • acquire more sophisticated knowledge of the learner and their learning

Start with the WHY; Great leaders inspire everyone to take action

Why do we moderate? 
Tasks get more complex over time 
How consistent are we in our understanding of the literacy progressions? 
Do we align with National Standards?
Our OTJ's need to be defendable and justifiable

Think broad context about literacy
