Analyzing Program-Wide Pyramid Model Implementation: Introduction to the Teaching Pyramid Observation Tool (TPOT) and Teaching Pyramid Infant Toddler Observation Scale (TPITOS)

A critical part to monitoring implementation of the Pyramid Model Framework is reviewing and action-planning around classroom implementation data. The Teaching Pyramid Observation Tool (TPOT) and Teaching Pyramid Infant Toddler Observation Scale (TPITOS)provides practitioner coaches concrete information as to how teachers are implementing Pyramid practices in the classroom. After collecting this information coaches, with teachers can build personal action plans that meet the needs of the teacher and their specific classroom. The measure outlines the critical elements of Pyramid Model implementation, and it allows the coach and practitioner to discuss and plan for implementation of each level of the Pyramid. In this webinar, participants will learn about the features of the these fidelity measures, review instructions for administration, and discuss possible actions gleamed from the data.
