Educator Evaluation in MI: Unpacking the Framework

Implementing a complex evaluation rubric is a challenging endeavor, but, can be supported through collaboration and communication. This strategy-based course provides you with the tools to translate the formal language of your evaluation rubric into classroom observables that drive planning and instruction. You will also identify opportunities for peer observation and to discuss elements of high-quality instruction with your colleagues to further support implementation of research-based strategies and learning for all students. This course is part of the Educator Evaluation in Michigan series.

In this course, you will:

  • Identify partners to support you when unpacking the framework,
  • Identify descriptors that are synonymous with each level of your locally-adopted framework,
  • Examine proficient practice and key phrases from each level of performance for individual indicators, and
  • Explain the benefits of participating in peer observation.

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