Scaffolding Program Planning Through a Proposal Form


HVWP invites teacher leaders to propose workshops and other programs through a simple form that helps them draft their preliminary thoughts about a workshop that they would like to design and implement. The form scaffolds predictable planning work, asking new leaders to consider, for example, “What is the need? Who is the audience? What is the time frame? What are the resources that might inform the work?” This protocol can assist individual teachers or a collaborative group to plan their work in preparation for or during a professional development institute, and can provide institute coordinators with information to help guide teacher leaders in developing those workshops.
