The following is a true story from a Lakeville second grade classroom:
Classroom Noise Level Management Idea
What should I be working on for TDE?
All teachers should have met with their administrators for their one to one meeting to review task 1 from your efolio and this task should have been saved and submitted. Once your administrator has electronically signed the task and sent it back to you for your electronic signature, it will then appear in your "History" tab in TalentEd. At this point, you should not see task 1 or 2 in your task list any longer.
Year 1 and 2
Complete first observation with IDSS Coach by winter break - including pre/post conferences and reflection in e-folio; remember to refer to the rubric to cover all areas in your reflection.
Observe and reflect on your takeaways from observing a colleague-this reflection is completed in the second box inside the Peer Feedback Reflection section. You are responding to the prompt of "What did you learn from observing another colleague that can be applied to your own professional practice?"
Complete first observation and pre/post observation questions and submit.
Year 3 = 2x with administrator - Q2 & Q3
Probationary = 3x with administrator - Q1, Q2 & Q3
Coming Soon: Your Instructional Coach will be sending you a tip sheet
regarding the reflection of your PLC.
Benchmark provides assessments that can be used as grade level common formative and summative assessments. In order to ensure that they are common, be sure to discuss with your grade level if you are giving the online version or the hard copy version (the questions are different, although you can find both versions online), and whether you are reading the assessment aloud to your classes, or asking them to take it independently.
As always, let us know if we can be of any assistance with this process!
