           Purpose of the IPDP
   An opportunity for educators to create their
    own professional learning plan in order to
    support high levels of student learning.
   Developing long-range goals will directly affect
    what is done in the classroom.
    Teachers Take Charge of Their Own
   Individual teachers (or grade levels) should
    design their professional development plans so
    that it is aligned to the School Improvement.
   It can change as you grow and meet your goals.
   It should be reviewed and modified annually
    with input from your administrator, mentor,
    and/or colleagues.
   It is a mobile document that can move with you.
    Main Components of an IPDP
   Goals & Rationale
   Objectives
   Learning Activities
   Timeframe
   Evidence of Accomplishment
   Resources Needed
   Reflection
             IPDP Goals

 The end result that a person wishes to
 reach or accomplish. Goals focus on a
 result, impact outcomes or end result.
        Effective IPDP is based on:
   School Improvement Plan
   Analysis of Student Data
   Analysis of Self Assessment of Professional
    Teaching Standards
   Evaluate Strengths, Areas of Improvement
           Questions to Consider
   What is the basis for your goals?
   How is your goal linked to your individual
   How did you identify your need and what
    reflection data did you use?
   How is your goal linked to the SIP?
   How is your goal linked to student achievement?
Questions to consider continues:
   What skills, knowledge or ability do I need to
   How will I know I have accomplished my
   What will I do when mastery is not
   What can I collect as evidence of my PD
    Questions to ask for specific goals
   Would student test scores improve if I worked
    more with teachers on inquiry in science classes?
   Would examining student work help me to
    better understand specific student’s needs?
             An IPDP includes:
   I will……….
   In what area……..
   And then……..
            Writing Your Goals
   Strategic and Specific
   Measurable
   Attainable
   Results-oriented and Realistic
   Time-bound or Timely
    Example of a SMART Goal
As a result of using student discourse, the
 percentage of students in my room passing the
 mathematics proficiency test will increase this
 year by 20%.
As a result of using student discourse, the percentage of students in
my room passing the mathematics proficiency test will increase this
year by 20%.

   Strategic and Specific – increase in number of
    students passing test
   Measurable – 20% increase
   Attainable – possible to achieve
   Results-oriented – specific results stated
   Time-bound – this year’s test
  Other Examples of a SMART Goal
I will focus on the area of literacy in order to help all
   students learn at high levels and pass the teacher or
   publisher made reading assessment. Then, I will use
   the new knowledge and instructional practices in my
   classroom focusing particularly on students who are
   struggling to read and comprehend factual materials.
By the end of the school year 50% of my students will be
   at proficient or advanced levels on the teacher or
   publisher made writing assessment.
           Developing Your Plan
   Establish clear guidelines and evaluation
    methods for determining successful completion
    of your plan.
   Schedule quality time with administrators,
    mentor, and colleagues to discuss what you want
    to accomplish.
     Goals that are NOT SMART:
   Encourage students to accept greater
   Prepare to move to block scheduling
   Integrate technology into the curriculum
      Step 1 in writing your goal
State the learning goal by using verbs that describe
    the learning that will result in improvement.

Example: I will learn about…..
         I will study….
         I will gain an understanding of…..
      Step 2 in writing your goal
State how the goal will be applied to practice – will
  it be applied to curriculum, instruction,
  assessment, or supervision and what work will
  you do?
Example: I will learn more mathematics to
            improve my content knowledge.
           I will gain an understanding of diversity
            and how it will enrich my classroom.
      Step 3 in writing your goal
Describe the evidence you will collect that you
 have accomplished your learning goal and it has
 had an impact on your practice.

Example: I will create a portfolio.
         I will analyze student work.
         I will create a reflective journal.
       Activity #1: Using the IPDP
   Write one goal that is Specific, Measurable,
    Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound.
              IPDP Objectives
   Objectives are short term actions that are
    completed in order to achieve the goals.
   Objectives can focus on acquiring new
    knowledge and skills.
    Activities for Professional Learning to
     Use in Accomplishing Your Goals
   Increase subject             Independent or
    knowledge                     Collaborative
   Improve curriculum           Join study groups
   Examine student work         Use technology
   Conduct action research      Coach and mentor
   Examine case studies         Time bound -within the
   Job-embedded strategies       school year
     Activity #2: Using the IPDP
Develop a plan of action to achieve your goals:
 strategies/activities

 timelines

 who you need assistance from to implement
  your strategies/activities
     Evidence of Accomplishment
   What evidence will you submit to show what
    you have accomplished?
   When will you review your plan and make
   Documentation
     Certificate of attendance
     transcripts
     Implementation logs
     Lesson plans with implementation
     Activity #3: Using the IPDP
Determine the methods you will use to:
 Show evidence that the activity or strategy
 Document the impact that the strategy/activity
  has had on improving student achievement
   Before you plan
   After you plan
   After you engage in PD
   Throughout the PD process

“Reflection gives educators a chance to tap
  into what they've learned”
  by Joan Richardson
      Basic Reflection Questions
   What happened?
   Why?
   So what?
   Now what?
                Activity #4:
            Evaluating Your Plan
With your partner, respond to these questions when
  reviewing your plan:
 Do the goals and the plan reflect your needs as well as
  your school’s needs?
 Does your plan reflect new learning and growth, not
  just time and effort?
 Does your plan reflect how student achievement will be
 Have you included methods of assessment?
 Have you identified evidence that you will gather?
