A Framework for Teaching Rubric A Deeper Understanding
If you were to observe an excellent teacher, either in the classroom or another professional setting, what might you see or hear that would cause you to think that you were in the presence of an expert?
What would make you think, “Wow, this is good! If I had a child this age, this is the class I would want my child to be placed.”

The Rubric in Action
As you watch the video, use the Rubric in Action handout to:
Circle the level of performance for the component on the handout (unsatisfactory, emergent, proficient, distinguished)
Take notes to support your choice of level
You will be working in domains 2 and 3 only for this activity.
It’s all about the discussion…
In your group, discuss within the framework of the rubric:
Why is it important to have a post-observation discussion between an evaluator and an instructor?
… the discussion fosters GROWTH!
