Vendor Features and Info

Teachstone is the certifying organization of the CLASS. CLASS is a tool for measuring and improving teaching quality. CLASS observation scores are used to understand the quality of teacher-student interactions and then inform targeted professional development for teachers. We believe Head Start grantees deserve the best CLASS training and professional development, directly from the source. Teachstone offers trainings for conducting CLASS observations, delivering CLASS coaching, and much more.

Services
Prepare Teachers for CLASS Observations

Help teachers develop a basic understanding of CLASS to prepare them for observations with our CLASS Primer for Teachers and online CLASS Foundations course. These services help teachers understand the CLASS tool and what they will be assessed on.

Collect CLASS Data

Build internal capacity in your organization to collect reliable CLASS data by training a certified CLASS observer for your organization. During this 2-day training, participants will build an in-depth understanding of the CLASS methodology and prepare to reliably assess the quality of the interactions teachers have with their students. If you don’t have CLASS observers on your staff, our expert CLASS observers can come to you and conduct observations.

CLASS Coach Training

Organizations benefit from coaches who can guide teachers with tailored professional development, feedback, and CLASS strategies they can use in the classroom. Our trainings prepare coaches to deliver group coaching sessions or individualized coaching through classroom video footage.

Online CLASS Data and Professional Development Platform

myTeachstone is your command center for all things CLASS. Our online platform helps you collect CLASS data, provide professional development to teachers, and track improvement in your organization.

Instructional Support Training for Teachers

The Instructional Support domain is the most challenging domain to master for many teachers. In this 1-day training, your teachers will learn about the dimensions and indicators in Instructional Support and why they matter for students.

The content of CLASS represents evidence of sound teaching practices. The cost, however, continues to climb for training, re-certification and resources.
