This workshop is for both beginning and experienced mentors (prerequisites: Instructional Mentoring, Observing and Conferencing, and Using Data to Inform Instruction). They will

  • Use learning and experiences (from self and others) to inform future mentoring practice.
  • Use tools and protocols to support teachers as they plan assessment-driven differentiated instruction aligned to content standards.
  • Apply strategies for providing meaningful feedback.
  • Reflect upon professional growth and set next steps.

Experienced mentors will find useful not only videos and new opportunities to practice and process the information, but also revised, standards-based lesson planning tools that embed GRR (gradual release of responsibility) and address language-learning needs of the CCSS (Common Core State Standards). It may be helpful to perceive Designing Effective Instruction as an expansion of the end of the discontinued NTC workshop “Analyzing Student Learning.”


Formative Assessment System tools and protocols:

  • Planning for Effective Instruction
  • Lesson Plan: Backwards Design
  • Instructional Groups


This two-day training runs from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, at the Monona Grove School District Office, third floor, 5301 Monona Drive, Monona. It includes breakfast (starting at 7:30) and lunch.

Register here (registration deadline is two weeks prior, or January 14) for Designing Effective Instruction, January 24-25, 2018.


Workshop is $295 per person for DCNTP members; $270 per person for more than one attending from a district. Online access to tools and the print field guide are included. There is an additional cost of $20 for print tools.
