Howard University Middle School began working with the Danielson Group (DG) as a partner in 2019.  With administrators and teachers at the middle school, the DG has introduced strategies from the Framework for Teaching (FFT) within the mathematics department. Our team has facilitated trainings to develop a deeper understanding of the Framework and its common language for instruction to assist in administration assessment, classroom observation, and qualitative synthesis of insights, trends, opportunities, and needs. At Howard University Middle School, the DG is introducing coaching using our guidelines and trainings for effective professional learning communities (PLCs). Focusing on the department and school’s unique needs, our team of experts have aided in the educators’ mission of instructional improvement strategies.
