Events This Week!

I will be out of the building:

WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY (and all next week)!!! :-)


Round 1 of our Observations are done and I will continue with Round 2 after break. The 'Noticings’ and ‘Wonderings’ sections will focus on the Dimension of (CP) Curriculum & Pedagogy and (CEC) Classroom Environment & Culture for our Round 2 observations. If I have my laptop it will be an observation; if I'm in the classroom without it, I'm just visiting! :-)

  • Observations - We will again conduct a minimum of 3 observations for the year (district continuity).
  • Observation Time - 10-30 min of lesson scripting and another 15 minutes of coding.
  • I should be able to access or view your daily lesson plans with assigned standards.
  • The first two observations will be unannounced. The third observation may be scheduled as agreed upon by the teacher and administrator.
  • We will have a Dimension focus during each observation (up to two dimensions). The dimension focus areas will be the areas that the Noticings and Wonderings will be derived.
