A ” WORTH-IT” Teacher Evaluation

A Four-Part Module for New or Frustrated Evaluators on How to Make the Teacher Evaluation Process Worth-It!

This four-part, step-by-step, virtual series will provide new and frustrated evaluators with the non-negotiables of WHAT to focus on for announced and unannounced evaluation observations and conversations.  Evaluators will also load up their evaluation toolkit with tips-n-tools on HOW to make each aspect of the evaluation process worth-it for BOTH the educator and the evaluator.  Before each session, participants will be provided with pre-learning resources to maximize the virtual learning process. Between each session, participants will “try out” the evaluation content/skill/tool(s) so that by end of the four-part module, each participant with have developed their own “worth-it” teacher evaluation approach for IMMEDIATE learning impact for educators and students!

Essential Leadership Question: How can I use the teacher evaluation process as BOTH a shared focus on teaching’s impact on student learning and an opportunity for professional growth?

  • Session 1’s Focus on the Six High Impact Evaluation Areas of Teaching and Learning: This session supports evaluators having foundational “look-n-listen for’s” in teaching and student learning. Participants will determine priorities procedural and instructional non-negotiables for both announced and unannounced observations. Take away specific guiding questions, tools, and structures for guiding teachers how to “know and grow” their own learning process for research-based best practice!
  • Session 2’s Focus on the Big 5 Priorities of EVERY Planning Conversation: Find out how to use the BIG 5 Planning Priorities that should be included in every evaluation planning conversation. Experience a step-by-step protocol with guiding questions and template to support this critical learning conversation.  Walk-away with a strategy for making the planning conversation be both meaningful and manageable in 20 minutes or less!
  • Session 3’s Focus on Low Bias, Student-Focus Observation Approaches: Practice collecting, sorting, aligning and analyzing observation data against master-scored videos. Develop approaches for focusing on student-learning vs teaching in observation process. Take away different ways with aligned observation tools to capture student-learning impact.
  • Session 4’s Focus on Collaborative Reflection Conversations that GROW Professional Learning: Maximize the student-learning observation data through collaborative reflection conversations that empower the teacher and the evaluator. Gain a powerful conceptual thinking protocol that builds on teaching assets, goes deeper into learning possibilities and ends by growing a student-focused TASCC!
