Evaluating and Improving Teacher Performance.
Manatt, Richard P.
This workbook, coordinated with Manatt Teacher Performance Evaluation (TPE) workshops, summarizes large group presentation in sequence with the transparancies used. The first four modules of the workbook deal with the state of the art of evaluating and improving teacher performance; the development of the TPE system, including selection of criteria and performance areas; a method to analyze the current teacher evaluation skills of an appraiser; and how to conduct an appraisal interview. The next four modules deal with the cycle of preobservation conference, observation, and postobservation conference, including preobservation questions and an observation guide; methods for dealing with the nonproductive teacher; methods for giving negative feedback in a positive way; and effective teaching behaviors identified by research. The next four modules contain exit tips summarizing the workshop; an article on using effectiveness research in teacher evaluation; the writing of job improvement targets for teacher performance evaluation, including a job targets worksheet; and sample evaluation materials, including forms, checklists, a sample evaluation report, sample letters, and a sample teacher job description. Many pages in the workbook contain space for personal notes. (JM)
