Classroom Observation



EFFECTIVE SUPERVISION: SUPPORTING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TEACHING

Administrative leaders have performed observations of teaching practice for years, but those observations have often been seen as superficial at best and subjectively biased at worst. And yet, observation, when done well, can play a vital role in increasing teacher effectiveness, and has become an important part of teacher evaluation systems. What can teachers really gain from being observed in the classroom? And what should the observers be looking for?

In Effective Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching DVD, researcher and author Robert J. Marzano presents a framework for observing classroom instruction based on the questions and frameworks he first laid out in the best-selling book The Art and Science of Teaching (see inside). Marzano presents a detailed observation protocol and demonstrates how to use it¡Xnot only as a tool for analyzing classroom instruction, but also as a starting point to encourage professional dialogue among teachers. As you observe teachers in a variety of classrooms, Marzano and a panel of teachers identify critical aspects of instruction that can help all teachers move their practice from good to great. The interplay between the lessons and the discussions will yield "aha" moments for teachers of all ages and subject areas. This is an essential tool for supervisors, administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders, and can also assist professional learning communities in their ongoing work.

IMPROVING INSTRUCTION THROUGH OBSERVATION AND FEEDBACK

Educational Consultant: Carl Glickman

Everyone knows that the key to helping schools and students achieve success is to help teachers grow professionally and improve the quality of their instruction. Here's a video series that explains and demonstrates exactly how you do that through teacher observation and feedback. Find out how schools use proven teacher observation and feedback techniques to help improve teaching and learning. See administrators, supervisors, and teachers working in a variety of ways to foster the development of their colleagues. And visit classroom observations, conferences, and team meetings to see how to implement the observation and feedback techniques successfully.

In Program 1, Different Models of Providing Classroom-Based Assistance, explore four proven professional development models that use observation and feedback techniques. Discover how school leaders provide classroom-based assistance through these techniques. And understand the role teachers play in assisting other teachers' growth.

Program 2, Observation Techniques, introduces you to two types of observation techniques that provide the data teachers need to analyze their classroom practices and take improvement steps. Learn the difference between qualitative and quantitative observation techniques and when each should be used. See examples of leaders and teachers working together effectively to improve instructional decision making. And discover how teachers can gather and analyze classroom data that informs their instructional practice.

View Program 3, Approaches to Working Closely with Teachers, to explore approaches that school leaders use when working closely with teachers. Visit one-on-one conferences and study teams to see the interpersonal approaches, behaviors, and processes that ensure these interactions work effectively.
