As a school leader principal you are responsible for conducting classroom and teacher observations and providing valuable feedback. This experiential course allows you to explore the process of observing and evaluating teachers to identify practices that support the Professional Standards for Michigan Teachers. You will have the opportunity to perform case studies in a real classroom setting in order to script a lesson, code the lesson using your district’s evaluation tool, and provide feedback with the guide of support documents.
In this course, you will:
- Practice an observation/evaluation case study in a real classroom setting,
- Interpret and collect appropriate data that demonstrate support for highly effective, effective, minimally effective, and ineffective teachers.
- Identify best practices in teacher evaluation, and
- Reflect upon authentic observations and feedback during a recorded conversation with your case study teacher.
