We asked the students to develop three panel rubrics in terms of Jim Knight's framework for coaching: What does effective teaching look like in these areas?
|Classroom Management |
The student teachers started off by focusing on the smiley faces, mostly on Classroom Management (the first one on the board). Dave filled in the above as a demonstration off the top of his head. And we realized that this was going way beyond today. It was feeling more like a semester long project, as we collectively learn more about being effective teachers. One TA later shared that she felt mostly she knew about the frowny faces. Didn't know what she wanted to be yet, but had some ideas what she didn't want to be. Makes sense to me.
I'll continue to share as these develop. It would be terrific if any readers might share share elements of what would be on their rubric.
