The Evolution of Quality Teaching and Four Questions for Change
Gabriel, Rachael
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n8 p50-53 May 2016
Today we look to determine teaching quality through a combination of observation, surveys, and test scores. These measures fail to answer the most important question about quality teaching: How is it accomplished? How has this teacher used questioning today, and what drove their decision to do so? How has this teacher structured independent reading assignments and what drove their decision to do so? How has this teacher decided to assess students' understanding of a text and what drove their decision to do so? The quality lies in a lesson's active ingredients, not just in its final products.
