Nuances of Working with the Danielson Model for Teacher Evaluation
Thursday: 1 – 2:30 p.m. Room 303
Friday: 1 – 2:30 p.m. Room 303
The Danielson Framework for Teaching describes a set of knowledge and skills that can be used to help teachers achieve high standards of professional teaching practice. However, a cursory knowledge of the model is insufficient for success. This session will focus on the observable components, highlighting often confusing differences among them. In doing so, teachers will develop strategies for pushing their practice and striving for highly effective instruction.
Teacher Evaluation — Behind the Scenes Work (Professional Responsibilities)
Thursday: 3 – 4:30 p.m. Room 303
Friday: 9:30 – 11 p.m. Room 303
No matter which teacher practice evaluation instrument your district uses, they all have standards dealing with Professional Responsibilities (Stronge Standard 6, McREL Standard 1, Marshall Standard F, Marzano Domains 3 and 4, Danielson Domain 4). These are typically “unobservable” as they describe teacher’s work outside of their interactions with students. This session will explore processes teachers can consider in gathering and analyzing data around their professional practice.
