JUNE 13- #1801 Gathering Evidence During Observations and Conferencing Using The Danielson Model

This academy will satisfy the retraining requirement for those who will be evaluating teachers (so long as it is taken during the 5 year license cycle). This course will allow participants to learn effective skills and strategies for using Charlotte Danielson’s Frameworks in a summative setting in order to more effectively:  1.  Identify evidence at the component/element level during formal and informal observations; 2.  Use evidence to effectively rate staff on the levels of performance for each domain; 3.  Acquire strategies to support effective collaborative conferencing around formal and informal observations; and  4.  Learn techniques, strategies, and protocols to use when conferencing with staff about professional development.  Course participants will apply these new skills and strategies to a case study of professional practice as it relates to their work in the teacher appraisal system.
