Therefore, observations of performance should include other aspects of the teacher’s responsibilities such as his or her performance in meetings, work with colleagues, and writings. Classroom Walk-Throughs The Classroom Walk-Through is a brief classroom visit that is highly focused on key elements and followed by a reflective dialogue or trend meeting between the teacher and observer. Briefer visits encourage more frequent samplings of classroom dynamics over time, which provides a reliable measure of teaching and learning, instructional strategies, learner engagement and learning environment. A particular emphasis of the Walk-Through is an audit of the alignment of teaching objectives and learning expectations, curriculum-based and grade-level targets (appropriately based on Bloom’s Taxonomy), text and/or materials. Work Samples Teachers may elect to demonstrate goal attainment over time through a body of evidence. Choices include a work sample review, a professional presentation to colleagues, a conference presentation or a published article. June 2006 14

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
