Professional Development & Support
GrapeSEED’s Professional Learning Specialists work with teachers and administrators to ensure quality implementation and maximum results in the classroom. Our professional development and coaching support, one of the most comprehensive in the industry, is designed to prepare and assist teachers on their journey to student success. In addition, on-demand video-based webinars and courses cover an array of topics to enhance and support the GrapeSEED teaching experience.
Our professional development is structured, practice-based, and differentiated according to teachers' strengths and needs. Feedback from teachers consistently shows that input from the Professional Learning Specialist is useful and can be immediately integrated into classroom practices.
Foundation Training prepares teachers to use the GrapeSEED curriculum and provides the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to effectively use the materials. Teachers attend Foundation Training virtually, via Zoom, before they begin teaching the curriculum.
Professional Development Video Library
Teachers have unlimited access to a comprehensive video library and online courses that serve as professional development resources focused on implementing the GrapeSEED curriculum. Topics include GrapeSEED Materials and Effective Teaching Examples modules and the Master Teacher series.
Teacher support is focused on implementing the GrapeSEED curriculum with fidelity to ensure student success. Virtual support could include classroom observations focused on identifying areas of success and growth, 1-on-1 coaching sessions, co-teaching, and/or providing a professional learning session for teachers on an agreed upon, specific aspect of implementing the GrapeSEED curriculum.
Self-Reflection Video Analysis
Teachers video record themselves teaching a GrapeSEED lesson and complete a self-reflection video analysis. They then meet with a GrapeSEED Professional Learning Specialist who provides feedback on how to enhance implementation fidelity and effectiveness for increased student success.
