Teacher Evaluation - Freebie!

With the new common core, and all of the new teacher evaluation systems being put in place, I find myself always looking for ways to be “highly effective”.  In my district, teachers are evaluated under the Danielson Framework.  On this rubric system, under domain 3d  “Using Assessments in Instruction”, it states that a clear indicator of a highly effective teacher is one in which the students self-select assessments and have a hand in helping to choose/create those assessments.

To make sure I hit this element during an observation, I allow my students to self-select a graphic organizer to use in order to demonstrate their understanding at the end of a lesson.  For my latest observation, my students were sequencing pictures from a story before they were introduced to the text.  After the lesson, the students were asked to sequence the pictures into a logical order based on clues they see in the pictures.  My students have been introduced to self-selecting their assessment at the beginning of the year, so by this time, they know exactly which graphic organizer will help successfully show me they understand the targeted objective.  

To really hit the nail on the head with this domain, I originally create 10 graphic organizers at the beginning of the year and have the students work to choose 4-6 of them that we will use as our classroom assessment pieces for the semester (this is where I hit the criteria for student choice or assistance in the selection of the assessments).  

Here are a few samples of the differentiated options:
