WHAT DOES AN INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITATOR DO?
Instructional facilitators apply strategies of adult learning across teacher leadership activities. We often design and lead district and building level training based on assessed student and teacher needs. We help teachers analyze classroom and state assessment data to inform instruction and frequently provide demonstration lessons in curriculum and teaching techniques for classroom teachers and others. As instructional facilitators, we communicate research-based instructional practices and student achievement between and among teachers within and across grade levels and assist in the implementation of the components of the Arkansas Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (ACSIP) process. We provide differentiated assistance to teachers based on individual needs to ensure high levels of success for their students.
