Critical Friend Application
Deadline: January 31, 2021
Critical Friends are essential to the success of Teach to Lead and are highly valued by the educator teams with whom they work. In addition to having dedicated time for collaboration and support in developing concrete action steps, key to Summits is that each team is provided a dedicated champion to help facilitate discussion and contribute to their project as they are guided through a structured planning process. Critical Friends help teams to:
Think deeply through the problem they are trying to solve and their proposed solutions;
Develop concrete steps towards goals by asking probing questions and offering advice;
Connect to relevant ideas, people, organizations, and resources; and
Stay encouraged and supported during and after the Summit ends
Why do you want to be a critical friend?
What is your prior critical friend experience?
Critical Friend matches work best when the individual brings relevant background knowledge or experience, in addition to strong facilitation skills, to a team's project. For example, this could include: extensive experience as a teacher leader; special education instruction or policy knowledge; or provider of professional development for early educators as some examples. How would your professional background assist in this process? What skills would you bring to this role?
Have you attended a previous summit? If so, which one(s)?
