Special education classroom walkthrough checklist

This resource was developed to look for indicators of successful teaching practices when observing 6:1:1, 8:1:1 and cluster teacher classrooms in a District 75 school. This process supported the hosting school in identifying trends and gaps in their school-wide professional development around assessment practices. This visit occurred late in the year and only after the triad members gave detailed feedback on observations of model teacher classrooms, related to their learning focus area of data driven assessment. The checklists were used at a time when the hosting school was in the process of "scaling up" their change ideas to staff members across the school. The school identified which Danielson components were priorities for them and created checklists to guide continued professional learning for staff.
