CLASS® Inspired

Teachstone® partners with educators to implement CLASS assessment, data collection/analysis, and teacher training to improve classroom dynamics and, ultimately, student performance. Our solutions help organizations perform initial assessments and train staff to use CLASS with fidelity, allowing for long-term impact on classroom interactions.

Embarking on your CLASS Journey

Teachstone’s talented team of implementation specialists work with school leaders to develop a CLASS Journey that is customized to fit the needs of a school/program. With the support of hundreds of research studies, we work with schools to gather data and improve practice across an entire faculty.

Establish Baseline

Gathering baseline data about what is happening in your classrooms is the first step to improving teacher-student interactions. Teachstone will help you develop a plan to train observers and collect data from classrooms.

Develop Proficiency

Once baseline data has been gathered by your Teachstone-trained observer, we’ll work with you to analyze data and to determine the appropriate coaching for your teachers. You will have access to teacher data via our myTeachstone® online platform. The second stage of the journey is primarily focused on training coaches to work with your teachers, and then deploying those coaches to provide support.

Sustain Mastery

Schools in Stage 3 have committed to building the institutional capabilities required for implementing CLASS-based professional development across their entire teacher population. They understand that ongoing success requires a multi-year commitment to CLASS training and coaching. At this stage, myTeachstone becomes a critical resource for maintaining data and assigning professional development to teachers for continued learning.
