Access online and blended learning opportunities for registered program participants
WeTeachNYC Classes & Communities provide NYC teachers and school leaders with an online space where they can engage in online classes and blended learning communities with their colleagues.
Currently, access to communities is limited to participants in specific NYCDOE programs.
This collection contains resources to support administrators and other observers in analyzing evidence gathered during an observation learning when preparing to rate and/or provide feedback on teacher practice.
After an observation, observers may review their gathered evidence (including observation notes and any samples of student work) and complete this graphic organizer with evidence of student learning outcomes. Using the “Reflecting on Student Learning Outcomes at the Lesson Level” tool is one strategy to ensure participants are recording evidence of student learning. Observers have found that doing this prior to rating the practice with the Framework for Teaching helps ensure that they’re considering not just what the teacher did, but also the student learning that occurred.
This protocol can be used by groups administrators and/or teachers to support them in fairly and accurately interpreting teacher practice, thus bringing greater objectivity to teacher development and evaluation.
