Teacher Evaluation: Six Prescriptions for Success.
Stanley, Sarah J., Ed.; Popham, W. James, Ed.
This book presents six alternative teacher evaluation approaches in six chapters. Each contributor was directed to respond to an identical stage-setting stimulus; then the chapter was immediately relayed to a public school practitioner who was asked to supply a "from-the-field" reaction. The reactions follow each chapter under the heading, "From the Practitioner's Point of View." The chapter titles and the different approaches to teacher evaluation implicit in them are as follows: (1) "Evaluation for Enhancing Instruction: Linking Teacher Evaluation and Staff Development" (Thomas L. McGreal; (2) "Create Rather Than Await Your Fate in Teacher Evaluation" (Madeline Hunter); (3) "Judgment-Based Teacher Evaluation" (W. James Popham); (4) "Teacher Performance Evaluation: A Total Systems Approach" (Richard P. Manatt); (5) "Evaluating Teachers as Professionals: The Duties-Based Approach" (Michael Scriven); and (6) "Evaluation of Teaching: The Cognitive Development View" (Arthur L. Costa, Robert J. Barmston, and Linda Lambert). References included with each chapter. (SI)
