Discuss one “observation” area that you would like to improve on for your teacher evaluation.
This is tougher for me as I don’t have teacher observations, again a matter of being a classroom assistant rather than a contracted teacher. My district has recently implemented a new Teacher Evaluation Instrument as well and I have not received any training in it. I think though student engagement would be one area I would want my supervisor to really be watching me for. Am I keeping the kids engaged? Am I consistent in my use of the Kagan cooperative learning structures that assist with keeping kids engaged? Am I catching kids that aren’t actively engaged and getting them back? I think this would be highly beneficial.
