Teacher Evaluation 

  • Develop a teacher evaluation checklist for the grade level and subject you researched in Week 3 that is either based on Table 9.1: Hunter’s Elements of Lesson Design or Table 9.2: Farrell’s Elements of Lesson Design.
    • Have at least 2 evaluation points for each row on the table. 
    • In addition to written notes, you must devise a rating scale (a number scale, unsatisfactory to exceptional, etc.) for each evaluation point on your checklist. You can use different scales for different points.

  • Respond to at least one of your classmates.
    • Identify at least 3 professional development opportunities to address teachers who need improvement based on their scores on their evaluations. 
    • Explain how you will assign professional development in a fair and non-discriminatory way.

Professional Development Opportunities

Based on their scores on their evaluations, teachers will be provided with professional development to address deficiencies.

  1. Observations with a Mentor – Allow the teacher opportunities to collaborate with a fellow teacher. This collaboration should include time allotted for peer-to-peer classroom visits with time set aside for feedback.
  2. Provide opportunities for more support-based interventions such as peer-modelling and coaching.
  3. Assign Skills-Based Webinars – to provide access to content, professional development, and professional learning communities beyond the current school
  4. Assign Professional Development that is unique to the needs of the individual teacher.
  5. If deficiencies are discovered in design of the lesson, provide opportunities for the teacher to co-plan with a mentor teacher.
  6. If deficiencies are discovered in the delivery of instruction, provide time for the teacher to observe other teachers perform well in this area.

Assigning Professional Development

In order to assign professional development in a fair and non-discriminatory way, professional development should be assigned based on individual need. Teacher should also be given opportunities to reflect on their teaching practices in order to assess their own level of need. Once the teacher has reflected on teaching practices, they can participate in the selection process of determining professional development to participate in. Having the teacher to complete a needs survey based on their teaching practice is another way to be fair and non-discriminatory in assigning professional development.
