The Use of Teacher Evaluation to Improve Instruction.
Horton, Margaret W.
This document presents a model for a program to guide teachers in effective self-evaluation. In this structured program, the teacher is expected to write course, unit, and daily lesson plans incorporating behaviorally stated objectives, which communicate his or her instructional intent. With the help of a trained observer-evaluator, the teacher is able, after the instruction period, to examine the results achieved and evaluate his/her own strengths and weaknesses in accomplishing the stated goals. Practice in this model program of inservice teaching should enable teachers to become proficient in evaluating their own performance in the classroom and improve their teaching skills. (JD)
