  • 2. Objective:<br />LE3-Motivates students to learn, take academic risks, and demonstrate classroom leadership<br /> <br />
  • 3. LE 3 Observable Evidence- Effective Teacher Behaviors<br />Teacher engages students throughout lessons by developing a variety of ways to integrate students‘ listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. <br />Teacher uses motivating activities (e.g., cheers, songs, chants, offering choices, tracking goals, friendly competition, real-world relevancy, specific praise). <br />Teacher encourages many students to try strategies to see if they lead to success and/or learning. <br />Teacher motivates many students to engage in real-world issues and solve authentic problems. <br />Teacher communicates and reinforces that student effort is path to achievement (e.g., praises efforts, provides feedback on efforts); encourage students to do their best. <br />Teacher provides several opportunities for students to make decisions and be leaders (e.g., class jobs, discussion or group leaders). <br />
  • 4. LE 3 Observable Evidence-Effective student behaviors<br />Almost all (&gt;75%) students begin working immediately after tasks are assigned and continue on tasks throughout work time. <br />Almost all (&gt;75%) students are visibly, actively working. <br />Almost none, if any, students are observed refusing to participate in lessons, as evidenced by students‘ responding to questions, talking to one another about work, and completing tasks. <br />Students encourage each other to work hard because it is established that hard work leads to success. <br />Students display willingness to speak up without fear of looking foolish (e.g., volunteer to share work on board, read aloud, offer suggestions). <br />Students‘ body language suggests keen engagement (e.g., eyes focused, on edge of chairs, excited movements, focused on work, heads turn quickly to look at speaker(s)). <br />Students demonstrate independence as self-directed learners who seek and use resources. <br />Students are observed persevering in solving problems, changing their approaches as needed and continually asking themselves if problems/solutions make sense. <br />Students maintain awareness of processes for solving problems while still attending to details; students continually evaluate reasonableness of results. <br />Students are observed taking active roles in class through class jobs, facilitating academic discussions, making choices, and/or expressing opinions. <br />
