The purpose of a well implemented TBT is to facilitate data discussions and instructional planning to positively impact the students directly. The 5-step process is the integral framework in the structure of TBTs.
Fidelity to the 5-step process is integral in moving forward with explicit expectations for adults regarding instruction that benefits students. Each of the 5-steps fit together and builds off of the information provided in the prior step.
The right side of this page has downloadable information on the 5-step process as the process pertains to Teacher Based Teams.
Data is at the heart of the instructional decisions made throughout the OIP. The audio clip below is of Dylan Wiliam. Mr. Wiliam shared the importance of collecting precise data in which to base decisions. TBTs need to start with the questions:
- What part of students learning needs to be analyzed?
- What data collection tool provides the data on that area of students learning?
