10 Hot Tips for Mediating Vignettes

Showing the vignettes is an active and reflective process. As teachers view vignettes, group leaders will lead discussions that help them to make sense of what they see in the vignettes, pick out key points what will become “take home” messages for the content area, and help teachers think about how these key ideas apply to their own interactions with their students at school. These conversations will include ways to tailor strategies to meet children’s developmental levels, the cultural context of the classroom, individual teacher styles or preferences, and the goals that teachers have for the children. Rich discussions and key principles often come out of small moments in the vignettes. Check out these hot tips to help select and tailor your vignettes to get the most out of the vignette discussion. This document includes examples for mediating some specific vignettes. Read TCM Hot Tips For Mediating Vignettes.
