defining effective teaching
Defining Effective Teaching

Two basic approaches:

Teacher practices, that is, what teachers do, how well they do the work of teaching

Results, that is, what teachers accomplish, typically how well their students learn

Assessing Teacher Effectiveness, Charlotte Danielson

observation protocol has been the predominant focus however that will shift soon
Observation Protocol has been the predominant focus, however that will shift soon

Currently calls for a significant portion based on student growth and assessment.

What does that mean?

  • Evaluation must include student growth data by
  • 2013-2014 25%,
  • 2014-15 40%,
  • 2015-16 50%.
  • Use 3 Years of Data where available

  • Test Results Will Be Included in Educator Evaluations

The 2011-12 school year is the first time schools will be required to incorporate data on student growth into all educator evaluations. Schools and districts will be provided with student rosters for each teacher that list the achievement level and growth information for each student. For more information on the legislation and requirements for the conduct of educator evaluations, please visit our Educator Evaluation webpage at <> .

the wisdom of practice
The Wisdom of Practice

If you were to walk into a classroom, what might you see or hear there (from the students as well as the teacher) that would cause you to think that you were in the presence of an expert?

What would make you think: “Oh, this is good; if I had a child this age, this is the class I would hope for.”

what is your definition of effective instruction1
What is your definition of Effective Instruction?
  • Please take an index card and write down your definition.
  • Pass the definition throughout the table, and circle or underline the important terms. Circulate the cards until you receive your original card.
  • Next, as a group, please come to a consensus and write down your key words/definition on chart paper. We will then display the chart paper.
a memorable teacher
A Memorable Teacher

Consider your long life as a student. Recall an occasion (or a pattern of occasions) that you still remember. The memory can be either positive or negative.

What makes this so memorable?
