Registered Teacher Criteria Rubrics
SOLO Registered Teacher Criteria Rubrics
SOLO functioning knowledge rubrics can be used to open "open to learning" conversations between educators, teachers, and senior leadership teams.
Why is this important?
Conversations about the quality of performance are difficult because they have the potential to threaten relationships by triggering discomfort and defensiveness. In the face of such threats, leaders often experience a dilemma between pursuit of their change agenda and protection of their relationships. Leaders may want to address what they see as a performance issue yet believe they can not do so without running an unacceptable risk of increased stress and conflict. In other words, they feel that they can not address the performance issues and maintain relationships with the staff member. They feel caught between the two. Robinson, V.
