Building Level

New York City, NY



This UELC case focusing on issues of teacher supervision and evaluation comes alive through a simulation set in the context of New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE). The simulation context in this module situates participants as members of a building-level leadership team in a K-8 traditional public school in Manhattan’s District 3, spanning Central Harlem, Morningside Heights, and Upper West Side neighborhoods. In the simulation the team works to consider how to best support teacher development in ways that tangibly increase the rigor in each of the school’s classrooms.
