Assessing the Teacher Evaluation Process: Featuring Michael Earnshaw and Joshua Buckley
We are starting the season of teacher evaluations and there are many questions from the teacher and administrator perspectives. In this episode we are going to be answering many questions on this topic, such as:
Have you ever had a terrible evaluation and wished you could have a redo?
Or began your first administrative job to find you are extremely nervous to evaluate a teacher?
What do you do if you observe a teacher that needs to grow in multiple areas?
Evaluations for educators can be a tough part of the job and this week's guest, Michael Earnshaw and Joshua Buckley, discuss the important areas of performing an evaluation from both the administrator and teacher perspective.
In this Episode, we discuss:
How much time is needed to observe
The Important aspects of providing feedback
Encouraging risk taking in the classroom
And what it means to have a “Punk Rock Classroom”
