Teacher Evaluation: Five Keys to Growth. "A Training Program for Effective Evaluation."
Rose, Mary; And Others
This manual describes a training program for teacher evaluation. The purpose of the program is to provide educators who evaluate classroom instruction with the tools that result in professional growth for the teachers and improvement of classroom instruction. Joint participation by teachers and administrators is encouraged in all phases of the evaluation process. The training program has five modules. The first module reviews the research on teacher evaluation, addresses the concept of common vision, presents a model of a growth-oriented evaluation system, and provides training in conducting a planning conference. The second module informs participants of the kinds of classroom behavior that can be recorded through observation, familiarizes them with the use of common observation tools, and demonstrates the utility of teacher-made observation tools. The third module presents methods for analyzing and interpreting descriptive data and provides procedures for a mutually productive postconference leading to meaningful goal setting. The fourth module presents means of measuring instructional effectiveness: student assessment, teaching artifacts, student evaluations, and self-assessment. The fifth module includes criteria for productive goals, and ideas for motivating teachers and providing resources. The modules follow a sequential procedure and include all back-up materials. The format for each module is: module overview, training agenda, activity instruction sheets, participant handouts, and hard-copy transparencies. A separate "Teacher Education Profile (TEP) User's Guide," dated December 1989, with related and non-duplicative content, has been appended. (JD)
