Teacher Self-Assessment.
Rohrkemper, Mary M.
To manage classrooms successfully, teachers must monitor carefully the relationships between their own actions and those actions' intended and unintended results, since erroneous perceptions of these relationships can cause problems. Teachers can act inappropriately when their goals are mistaken, as for instance when they develop false expectations of students, fail to recognize who "owns" problems, or misread the need for rewards or praise. This chapter of "Helping Teachers Manage Classrooms" discusses these problem areas and presents strategies for monitoring student perceptions of teachers actions, including group and individual observation methods, use of class discussion, and techniques for interviewing students directly.
