Moral is low, teacher-librarians are frustrated, have to find a way to recognize their efforts. -- I’d like to do this in September June juxtapose the response….
Set these post-its away until later….
To assess what “focus” of a conversation can be….try this exercise. Where the items correlate, that is what you should speak to… Value often is: what? Reading, research, resources, achievement, books, safe haven,
NYS = Danielson,
Recommendation -- Use Excel when gathering “items” – because it can easily be “re-configured” afterwards We grouped by Danielson domains and then had to regroup by state standards and had to transfer this to Excel. It gives you a vehicle to manipulate the data easily and by multiple filters, if necessary.
Exemplary librarians are usually not exemplary in every area Only 10% are to be Highly Effective – according to NYS.
We after a while…. We got giddy envisioning… “L” NYSED “make more of a distinction between Effective and Highly Effective” - Only 10% = H in the HEDI scale
