research findings
Research findings
  • Occasionally an individual teacher can transform students’ lives.
  • But the more powerful effect is when students get effective teaching from class to class, year to year.
  • Especially students with any kind of disadvantage.
  • However, the quality of teaching varies widely within the each school.
  • With ineffective teaching, we get the “Matthew Effect.”
  • School leaders’ job is orchestrating effectiveness.

The key to

improved student learning

is to ensure more good teaching

in more classrooms

more of the time.

DuFour and Mattos, 2013

  • Differentiates four levels of performance
  • Level 3 is solid, expected professional performance
  • The goal – all teachers performing at Level 3 and 4
  • Identify master teachers, use their magic, hold onto them!
  • Intervene with mediocre and ineffective teaching
we ve been using the wrong model
We’ve been using the wrong model!
  • Extremely time-consuming:
    • Pre-observation conference – 30 minutes
    • Full-lesson observation – 45 minutes
    • Write-up – 120 minutes or more
    • Post-observation conference – 30 minutes
  • No evidence it improves teaching and learning.
  • “Takes me out of the game for four hours!”
  • In other words, it’s not a good use of a leader’s time.
  • And it’s a recipe for mediocrity.
behind some classroom doors
Behind some classroom doors…
  • Teacher texting or e-mailing during class
  • Going over homework for the first 25 minutes
  • Round-robin reading
  • Teacher lecturing, many students tuned out, heads down
  • Teacher teaching while side conversations go on
  • COPWAKTA syndrome
  • Teacher calls on those who respond most quickly
  • Worksheets with low-level, one-word answers
  • Teacher showing a entertaining movie
  • Finishing a class early, students have “free time”
  • With all of these, the “Matthew Effect”
slide9
Nothing undermines the motivation of

hard-working teachers more than

poor performance in other teachers

being ignored over long periods of time.

Not only do poor-performing teachers

negatively affect the students in their classes,

but they also have a spillover effect by

poisoning the overall climate of the school.

Michael Fullan, 2003

supervision and evaluation the goal
Supervision and evaluation: the goal
  • Quality assurance – Honestly telling the public that every child is taught well in every classroom based on an accurate evaluation of every teacher
  • Praise and improvement – Affirming effective teaching and coaching less-than-effective teaching
  • Motivation – Giving teachers one more reason to bring their ‘A’ game every day
  • Personnel decisions – Making fair judgments for retention, tenure, awards, merit pay, dismissal
the dog and pony show stories why
The dog-and-pony show stories; why?
  • We tidy up the house when company is coming.
  • “I want to see her at her best, what she’s capable of.”
  • “I can see right through the dog-and-pony show.”
  • “If he can’t teach well when he knows I’m coming…”
  • Union contracts, based on mistrust
  • Makes the principal feel good; power trip
  • A way to avoid difficult conversations
  • Additional work when we confront mediocre teaching
so using the traditional model teacher evaluation is
So using the traditional model,teacher evaluation is…
  • Inaccurate – not a true appraisal of teaching
  • Ineffective – rarely improves sub-par teaching
  • Dishonest – can’t give quality assurance to the public
  • A major blind spot for researchers
  • We need to LET IT GO and find a better approach!
