Hold regular meetings of the cohort teacher teams
In the BARR Model, the teachers in a cohort have a shared meeting time. Teacher team meets weekly to discuss each student in the cohort using student-level data that is updated weekly.
The teacher team evaluates each student’s progress as well as academic and non-academic barriers to learning.
In these collaborative sessions, teachers identify students who are struggling and determine how to intervene to support them as well as students who should be accelerated. Each teacher provides a unique lens on the student and these perspectives combine during the meeting to create a more holistic view of the student.
As teachers work in teams to problem-solve for individual students' challenges, the collaborative and creative part of teaching is unleashed.
