Publication Type:Web Article
Year of Publication:2007
This is a Powerpoint presentation from Learning Point Associates (learningpt.org) geared toward administrators that synthesizes research about teachers as human capital and focuses on what school leaders can do to capitalize on Gen Y teachers' supposed characteristics (technology savvy, collaborative, etc.), including promoting teacher leadership and a collaborative culture. It describes what an effective school with Gen Y teachers looks like (job-imbedded professional development, school leaders as data managers, etc.) and breaks down specifics like the concept of a "walkthrough" where principals regularly give feedback to teachers.
