From instructional leaders to learning leaders. A change of focus. The Truth About Classroom Observation (Eric) : The Truth About Classroom Observation (Eric) The odds are greater that a teacher will be struck by lightening than found to be ineffective though classroom observations Ineffective teachers are unlikely to be receptive to negative feedback Principals do not have the expertise in content knowledge in every subject area required to provide valid assessment of teacher’s instruction. Development of an individual does not guarantee organizational improvement. Principal evaluation is a low-leverage strategy supplying only a minimal amount of time devoted to each teacher when observing a staff of at least 40, for example.

Each team member receives evidence of student learning that can be compared with other students attempting the same standard. The team is able to identify students who need additional support and highlights team members’ strengths. If a team struggles, the principal can provide necessary professional development. From Supervision to Capacity Building (Don) : From Supervision to Capacity Building (Don) Time spent on teacher evaluations is far better spent on helping teachers develop into collaborative learning teams. It is time to reduce or remove low-leverage high-time tasks: teacher evaluations. Collaborating with learning teams takes time, but it is a high-leverage strategy to improve student learning levels.
