The CLASS methodology is backed by decades of academic research and over 200,000 teachers have been observed by certified CLASS observers. Teachstone® has worked with organizations in 34 states to create a culture of excellence that impacts students, staff, and communities.
Teachstone’s interactive trainings bring CLASS to life for teachers, coaches, and observers. Our online tools and exercises use intuitive technology to help you measure data, provide coaching, and, ultimately, improve teacher-student interactions.
The Teachstone-enabled path to excellence for your classrooms
CLASS Stage 1
In CLASS Stage 1, certified observers use myTeachstone to establish a baseline assessment of classroom quality, comply with Head Start or state-level reporting requirements, and identify areas for focused professional development.
CLASS Stage 2
CLASS Stage 2 uses myTeachstone, hosted trainings, and coach certifications to address individual teacher development needs, and builds the foundation for impactful performance in the classroom.
CLASS Stage 3
CLASS Stage 3 builds institutional capabilities necessary for implementing CLASS professional development across an entire teacher population and supports ongoing engagement from certified coaches and trainers within an organization.
The CLASS methodology has been broadly adopted at the state and federal levels in the United States and by leading national education systems including Finland and Denmark. Here is a look at the countries where CLASS observations are taking place.
