Title: CTR: TEACHER EVALUATION TO ENHANCE PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
Description:
Teacher evaluation is a term that brings fear, anticipation, stress, anxiety, or even boredom to the hearts of teachers and administrators everywhere. How can we reinvent teacher evaluation so that it really makes a difference - so that everyone in school benefits from it so that students succeeded as a result of it? The good news is that many districts have paved the way for teacher evaluation to actually become professional development, by using a three-track evaluation system. Track I, for beginning teachers, promotes growth and new learning though mentoring, frequent observations, and support systems. Track II, for tenured teachers - promotes professional learning experiences through self-assessment, goal setting, data collection, formative evaluations, study groups, action plans, and evaluation in which teachers play an active role. Tack III, for tenured teachers needing assistance, focuses on remediating difficulties and recommending further action. 151 pages
