Officials say the Greenfield schools will take a major step toward better teaching when school reconvenes next week after summer vacation.
It's teachers coaching teachers, a voluntary program that was piloted last year and is now ready to go districtwide.
Research suggests that coaching is far more likely to result in actual change in the classroom than other forms of inservices, according to information presented by directors of curriculum and instruction Patrice Ball and Charity Eich.
Only five to 10 percent of teachers listening to presentations of teaching theory actually put those theories into practice, even if they saw them modeled, they said.
But coaching has resulted in 80 to 90 percent of teachers putting theory into practice, they said.
