Most principals are addicted to HSPS- Hyperactive Superficial Principal Syndrome Trapped in the office dealing crisis one after another Each day chopped up by interruptions If escapes from the office wanders in the premises without any systematic agenda. Evaluation visits only if absolutely required Teachers rarely get feedback and a very few authentic conversation between the teachers and the Principal. 20.10.2016 19Book Review Session
  20. 20. Mini Observation 1. Unannounced 2. Frequent- 10 observations a year for a teacher. - How is the teacher handling the beginning, middle and end of a lessons? - How is the teacher handling the different classes and /or subjects he or she teaches? - Are there marked differences in the quality of instruction in the morning, midday and afternoon? - Is the quality of teaching sustained in different parts of the week? 20.10.2016 20Book Review Session
  21. 21. 3. Short ( 10 minutes stay ) 4. Face to face feedback - Possible to communicate lot of things in few minutes - Can get answers to questions. - Teacher can correct an possible misunderstanding of something during observation. - Principal can sense whether teacher is ready to receive the critical feedback. - Can also help in general assessment of how the year is going and the plans for the future. 20.10.2016 21Book Review Session
  22. 22. - Best location for mini – feedback: Principal’s office or Teacher’s classroom when student’s are not around. 5.Perspective- includes free range observations and detailed checklists. HOTELS - Hospitality. Warm and welcoming classroom environment. - Objectives. - Teaching. Learning experiences skillfully orchestrated. - Engagement - Learning. Evidence of what being taught is learned. - Safety. Students can focus in learning 20.10.2016 22Book Review Session
  23. 23. 6. Humble Humility is the natural posture after mini- observations. A good way to start a follow up conversation would be “I was in your class for ten minutes and here’s what struck me” “I am curious about what happened after I left” “ Can you fill me in on that? I am not too familiar within the content” 20.10.2016 23Book Review Session
  24. 24. 7.Courageous 8.Systematic 9.Documented - Most teachers prefer no writing in the class for observation - Next preference is use of note pad - Mini observation- 10 minutes. - Follow up talk- 5 minutes - Writing the follow up note – 15 minutes. 20.10.2016 24Book Review Session
  25. 25. 10. Linked to teacher team work and school wide improvement 11. Linked to end of the year teacher evaluation. 12. Explained the basic rationale behind mini observation. Let us watch a video on classroom observation 20.10.2016 25Book Review Session
  26. 26. Learning Walk and Walk Through  Carolyn Downey, in her book , The three minute Classroom walk through has used the term walk through.  Walk through means a small team of administrators, teachers or some outside observers periodically doing a complete tour of the school focusing on particular aspects of classroom instruction. ( For example, student work on the walls).  Learning walk is usually spending two or three hours scrutinizing a school, sharing their impressions and give a general report, either verbally or in writing. 20.10.2016 Book Review Session 26
  27. 27. Mini- Observation  Although learning walks can be helpful and informative, mini- observations are potentially the most powerful strategy for improving teaching and learning.  They involve significantly more visits to all classrooms, individual feedback to each teacher, and individualized ,ongoing communication about teaching and learning based on the observations. 20.10.2016 Book Review Session 27

  36. 36. On the spot assessments  Individual accountability- students know that they may be called at any time.  Live data- Immediate insight into student’s misconceptions  Future benefits- to the lesson to follow  The retrieval effect- researches say quick assessment of learning make students retrieve and review what they have learned, forges better brain connection and improves long term memory.  The growth mind set- sends an implicit message to students that they can get smarter by working at understanding day by day.  Some internal assessments can kindle the rational thinking of the students.
