I'm always looking for helpful resources that can inform the work of principals and recently found an article on eSchoolNews that identifies six steps to effective teacher development and evaluation. Three ideas stand out from the others.
- include evidence of teaching and student learning from multiple sources
- use information to provide constructive feedback to teachers, not shame them
- adjust the system over time based on new evidence and feedback.
I'd enjoy hearing from you about how you're dealing with the changing expectations about teacher evaluation.
