7. Monitoring vs. Evaluation We are going to be monitoring for the skills we are focusing on this year. We are not writing an evaluation of a teacher based on what we see. We are going to be looking for and asking about the items we are focusing on this coming year. Educational Rounds-will be done to promote best practices and foster discussions. 5x5’s will be done by administrators, department heads, and teachers.

8. Lesson Look For… In large group lesson, uses numbered heads, in pairs to distribute summarizing/practice Energetic pacing of lesson Students actively engaged/thinking Ask About…. How do you use collaborative pairs or numbered heads in your large group lessons? How do you know when the lesson is moving too slow or too fast?

9. Vocabulary Look for… Content driven Visual representation well organized, easy to use, graphic Uses research-based strategies and direct instruction to preview vocabulary at the beginning of lessons and units. Indirect instruction to build vocabulary through writing, reading, discussion, etc.. Ask About… How are students aware of current vocabulary? What vocabulary strategy do you usually use? How is your current vocabulary organized for learning? How do students use vocabulary for reading or writing?

10. Graphic Organizers Look For…. Guides instruction and student thinking Guides writing extensions Guides reading assignments and questions Ask About… How do students use a graphic organizer in today’s lesson? Why did you choose that graphic organizer?
