Observe Reading Teachers:

Observe Reading Teachers Complete the observation of each teacher before the end of this six weeks. You also may want to consider observing ELA teachers as well February 24 th Way to GLOW… Way to GROW… Tell your teacher in descriptive language 2-3 POSITIVE things they are doing in their classroom. Include what they said or did, how students responded, and WHY continuing this in their classroom is beneficial for their students’ success.     Tell your teachers in descriptive, non-judgmental language 1 area to consider. If applicable, consider offering a resource or a technique that would have helped improve the teacher’s practice.

Observe Reading Teachers:

Observe Reading Teachers Example: February 24 th Way to GLOW… Way to GROW… Promoting Positive Climate--You’ve created a positive environment with high expectations! Consistent use of praise, effective use of the teacher/kid game, and clear expectations mean that all students are performing at a high level, responding in unison, and are frequently smiling during class (especially during bingo!)   CFU’s: Immediate, quality feedback--You consistently use modeling correct, repeating tasks, and delayed testing (“escape”) to correct errors made during oral tasks. As a result, students are extremely successful on oral tasks and are learning these words to mastery. CFU’s : Immediate, quality feedback---3 sts did not catch errors while writing spelling words. In order to ensure sts check carefully: While you spell the correct words, students dot each letter with a pencil, crossing out any words they misspelled. The physical act of dotting forces them to attend to each letter.   Project the correct words after checking orally, so students have a visual model to reference (anywhere it says “write on board” in the curriculum). Give sts 20 seconds after each written task to re-write misspelled words 3x. (3x so they get more correct exposures than the error)   Walk around while sts are checking/correcting their spelling and double-check they’ve caught all mistakes.
