Job-Embedded Professional Development
The Jane Schaffer Writing Program® provides job-embedded professional development as a follow-up component to face-to-face professional development workshops. After training teachers in collaborative, whole-group environments, Jane Schaffer® national consultants and master teachers demonstrate the instructional writing process in real time with current students; the training is centered on issues of actual practice in teachers’ classrooms.
- Job-embedded training (“JET”) may be performed with consultants floating to different classrooms or remaining in one classroom where students and teachers congregate each period.
- After each job-embedded training session, the trainer conducts a formal feedback session.
