Enrich the quality of teaching and learning in your school with meaningful teacher evaluations!

Effective teacher evaluation is at the core of improving the quality and value of education and principals bear the responsibility of implementing a teacher evaluation program that helps develop highly qualified teachers and promotes high academic standards. In their easy-to-use handbook, evaluation experts Kenneth D. Peterson and Catherine A. Peterson offer a fresh, innovative look into teacher evaluation methods, focusing on three central areas: 1) increasing the amount of objective data, 2) increasing teacher involvement, and 3) increasing the technical and sociological quality of the evaluation process. This excellent resource provides specific "how-to" methods to help principals:

  • Use the best objective evidence available
  • Put the teacher at the center of the process
  • Use multiple data sources
  • Use data sources which vary by individual teacher
  • Incorporate student achievement data
  • Inspire ongoing teacher reflection and analysis

Use the specific strategies and best practices in this practical guide to help inspire quality teaching and high academic achievement!
