ETF Training


The eight themes found in the Effective Teaching Framework training for WCPSS staff members are used as the organizational framework for the resources (both handouts and video clips) from the six day Effective Teaching Framework professional learning which serves as the foundation for the Effective Teaching Framework initiative.

Administrators and their representatives planning professional learning for their staffs may choose specific resources located here to fit the individual needs of their audience.

Note about the power points:  The format of the power points does not consistently convert well to the format of the ETF training site.  Some power points may open to a screen that states that the presentation can not be previewed.  It is safe to ‘Download’ them.  There are NO viruses on these power points, so it is safe to click on ‘Download Anyway’ on the next screen.  The power point will load at this point.  On the Day 6 Part 1 power point, some of the individual slides and images did not convert.  However, most of the slides are available in this power point as you scroll through it.
