Planning Meeting Guidelines

Try

Asking what the students really love doing and what they are good at. Start from a place of strengths rather than challenges.

Try

Giving teachers a ‘Do Now’ Class Profile Form. It allows you to get information about their students even if your meeting is cut short.

Try

Checking in with the teachers to build relationships. How do they like to communicate? What art form(s) do they like? How long have they worked at the school?

Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:

You can create a Google Form or other online survey to collect important information from Classroom Professionals if you are planning a remote residency or workshop. Check out other ways to adapt your planning meeting for remote teaching and learning.

Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:

For remote work, be clear about how the Classroom Teacher will give you feedback and how they are able to participate in live remote classes. Roles may be similar or very different from a typical, in-person classroom, but plan for supports that you anticipate you will need.

Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:

Planning Meetings in Remote Teaching and Learning scenarios may be easier (if everyone is more easily able to join a remote meeting than an in-person one), or more challenging (if you’re navigating technology issues or misaligned schedules).
