Element Assessment: Prove-It!

When making initial contact with an observee, the peer observer;

A. Should make it clear that the peer observer is the content/strategy expert.
B. Should show up unannounced to get a better picture of the teaching situation.
C. Should emphasize that the peer observation is a way for teachers to learn from each other.

Choose the false statement:

A. Teachers tell the peer how many times they want to be observed and the peer abides by that request.
B. The P2P process supports the idea of lifelong learning.
C. P2P observation and feedback can help identify areas for growth and spark interest and involvement in effective PLNs or social media groups/events.
The following scenario is good use of the peer observation process and a valuable use of time.

A teacher has been dealing with repeated misbehavior by one student. In fact, the teacher has sent the student to the office for being disruptive multiple times and the students negative behavior continues to escalate. The teacher takes great pride in having a classroom free from student misbehavior so he decided this would be something he could focus on for his peer observation.

When the teacher meets with you, he asks you to focus on the student who is not conforming to the class rules. He wants you to take notes about everything the student does during the observation time. He feels that such evidence would be valuable to share with the principal and counselor.
During the pre-conference, it is important to:

A. Agree on a focus for the observation
B. Connect to the Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFfT) or Specialist Framework
C. Decide the method for collecting evidence during the observation, i.e. scripting, tick marks, narrative
D. All of the above
