Educator Evaluation in MI: Preparing for Summative Evaluation

Planning for your summative educator evaluation allows you to adequately prepare for the end of one evaluation cycle and also look ahead to the next. This action-oriented course focuses on teacher and student growth; specifically, identifying areas in the evaluation process for teacher involvement and ownership. You will learn to constructively engage with your evaluator, collect evidence and artifacts that are representative of your teaching, and be empowered through teacher leadership to establish future professional growth. This course is part of the Educator Evaluation in Michigan series.

In this course, you will:

  • Practice how to discuss any questions you may have about summative evaluation with your evaluator
  • Identify tools and resources to use as evidence to help support your evaluator’s decision making as they rate your progress,
  • Explain what teacher leadership is and how it connects to your evaluation framework, and
  • Plan how you will use teacher leadership to make a positive impact in your school.

This course is offered in partnership with MDE. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy policy.
