(For the rest of the introduction and a summary of the first part of the presentation, please read part ONE.)
So, here is part TWO of my three part summary.
Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching, there are so many good ones out there).
The real feedback that might be useful is the observations themselves, the direct evidence, the "proof." So, I have
I end up with a page or two of hand-written notes with photos.
The secret to making this work for formal observations is the bottom of the page (not visible on the slide here. Instead, click here for the resources and find the sample observation pdf). The text from Danielson's domains 2 & 3 is there with room to make specific claims. Usually, as the observation goes on, I begin to take what I've seen and write about it in the Danielson section. At the end of the observation, I review those parts of Danielson that are blank to try to remember something seen that could fit well.
I usually sit in the room for five minutes after the lesson ends to wrap this up. Then, I send the the whole thing as pdf to the teacher. Right then, on the spot. By the time we have a post-observation meeting, the teacher has already had a chance to read my notes and main points of feedback. We can spend the time talking.
The system is quick, easy, and techy. Using Notability and iPad along with Danielson, meets the contract and my need to an easy to use system.
