    • The  Though(ul  Classroom  Teacher  Effec2veness  Framework   This  webinar  was  presented  by     Dr.  Harvey  Silver  on  November  7,  2012.    View  the  recording  online  at:   hBp://www.schoolimprovement.com/resources/webinars/thoughEul-­‐approach-­‐ to-­‐classroom-­‐observaGons/  
    • Why Teacher Effectiveness? A  recent  study  of  the  world’s  top  25  school  systems  draws  two   straighEorward  conclusions  about  how  to  improve  educaGon:    “The quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers.” “The only way to improve outcomes is to improve instruction.”   McKinsey & Company (2007)
    • The Thoughtful Classroom Teacher Effectiveness FrameworkTwo  of  America’s  leading  educaGonal  organizaGons  have  partnered  to  provide  a  new  web-­‐based  observaGon,  evaluaGon,  and  professional  development  system.           3  
    • Today’s Guiding Questions• What  does  a  “simple  and  deep”  approach  to  teacher  effecGveness  look  like?  • How  do  we  make  the  observaGon  process  meaningful  and  manageable?  • What  is  the  ulGmate  goal  of  any  teacher  evaluaGon  system?  • How  do  we  develop  a  final  evaluaGon  of  a  teacher’s  effecGveness?   4
