A Descriptive Review Process for Growth in Teaching.
Hanhan, Sara Fritzell; Kuklinski, Wayne
A description is given of the Descriptive Review Process, a method of analyzing a teacher's personal style in order to promote teacher development and improvement. The process combines teacher self-evaluation with evaluation by an observer and a chairperson. The emphasis of the process is on the teacher. The teacher's role in the process involves: (1) determining the specific focus of the process; (2) reflecting on the teaching practice being observed; (3) receiving feedback in a descriptive, nonjudgmental way; (4) becoming aware of patterns of personal style as they are exhibited in the teaching context; and (5) collaborating with the observer and chairperson in formulating recommendations to utilize the strengths of the personal style. Topics covered in this description include: ways the process has been successful; areas the teacher and the observer should reflect on in preparation for the process; steps involved in the process; and questions for the teacher to comment on during the process.
