Effective Teachers: Effective Evaluation in America's Elementary and Middle Schools.
National Association of Elementary School Principals, Alexandria, VA.
This handbook provides practical suggestions to principals on using teacher evaluation to develop a school's most important resource--its teachers. After briefly delineating the basic steps in teacher evaluation, the handbook provides advice in each of the following areas: formulating the approach; establishing an affirmative atmosphere; scheduling observations and conferences; and pre-evaluation conference; observing teachers in action; recording observations; analyzing the data; frequency of observation visits; announced visitations; providing feedback; the feedback conference; the setting; the conference agenda; the teacher's feedback; a sample plan of action for a teacher; getting a second (and third) opinion; checking progress; the culminating evaluation; the exceptional case (unacceptable performance); keeping the record straight; and looking ahead. Brief highlighted sections throughout the text provide succinct tips on observation and diagnosis, the extra dimension (or the global, high-inference qualities of effective teaching that eludes analytic evaluation techniques); the staff advisory council as a way of involving teachers in the evaluation process; and the summing-up phase (end-of-year assessments).
