4 Teacher beliefs influence teacher decisions and behaviors, and impact student opportunities and achievement.Clear understanding of standards by supervisors and those they supervise is the most direct path to superior teacher performance and thereby student achievement.The more we practice observing, note-taking, and analyzing teaching, the better at it we become.Feedback – information about our current level of performance as compared to a standard – is the only way to improve.In a standards-based classroom there are no secrets about what matters most.When teachers are clear on what student mastery will look like and sound like, they are able to share this clarity with students, and plan lessons that lead to mastery.When a lesson is taught for mastery, students are more engaged and more likely to learn.As supervisors/instructional leaders, we must lead our staff to a focus on student mastery.Teachers who frame the learning for students increase the likelihood of student learning.Different types of learners need different elements of framing. Since all types are present in our classes, we must frame in multiple ways. We cannot simply focus on what has the greatest meaning for us individually.There is a repertoire of strategies in each of the skill areas of clarity. We can all increase our repertoires, and be conscious of the match we’re making to our students and curricula.

33 Compare your labeling of the CEIJ in paragraphs three through five in the Sarah Smith report. Come to consensus, if possible.
34 Sarah Smith CEIJ Paragraph 1 Mrs. Smith effectively presented information through explanatory devices.She created a graphic organizer on the overhead projector to guide the students through defining run-off.She translated the words dissolved and suspended into simpler language by way of a class discussion (“Spring-time…fertilizer on grass to make it greener…that salt fertilizer will mix with water and dissolve…we need to talk about what that word suspended means…okay we’re talking about debris..anything that doesn’t get dissolved…”).She also presented the students with environmental pictures (“To get started I have pictures with pretend news articles about the Chesapeake Bay…”).As a result, students with a variety of learning styles were focused and engaged.
35 Sarah Smith CEIJ Paragraph 2 Mrs. Smith used several instructional strategies to help the students make cognitive connections.She used questioning as a way to prompt a resemblance to the students’ experiences (“What’s usually included with pictures?...If something gets dissolved, what does that mean?”).She used a personal experience to help the students related the content to their own lives (“I took my cup of coffee and put sugar in it. It got dissolved in the coffee...” ).She asked the students to compare and contrast in order to make a connection to today’s learning (“Think about the pictures we looked at yesterday…”).Thus, students’ prior learning was utilized and connected with the new information given during this lesson.
36 Sarah Smith CEIJ Paragraph 3 Mrs. Smith has built a classroom climate in which students feel safe to take risks.She made several comments throughout the lesson to promote risk taking (“..could be…you could make that up…you don’t have to be perfect…”).She stated, “…as long as someone at your table has something to share we’re good.”After the students were told to write captions for given pictures, a student asked, “What’s a caption?” Mrs. Smith did not chastise the student for not knowing or remembering the meaning of the word caption, but answered her calmly and respectfully. Another student asked a question and Mrs. Smith replied quietly.Therefore, students could safely communicate their level of understanding and signal their need to move on or request help.
37 Balanced Analysis NB p. 40 CLAIM EVIDENCE IMPACT JUDGMENT statement that a teacher performs a certain teaching skillEVIDENCEa quote or literal description of something said or done; at least three pieces of evidence are needed to constitute sufficient documentation to support a claimIMPACTstatement of what the behavior accomplished; the effect on students; “the students” are the subjectJUDGMENTadjective, adverb, sentence, phrase that lets the reader know what the writer thought of the teacher’s behavior; most often found IN the claimBalanced AnalysisNB p. 40
38 ImpactIs a statement of what was accomplished by the behavior just described in the claims and evidence.Establishes what was significant about the move in terms of students.Has “the students” as its subject.
39 Effective impact statements: Show a logical cause-effect relationship with the claim.Match the evidence.Have the students as their subject.May include judgment by stating the quality (positive or negative) of the impact on students and their learning.As a result, students remained unclear as to the desired standard of work.Thus, students were able to reiterate the standards for their projects.
40 Evaluating Impact Statements Review NB ppEvaluate each of the sample impact statements. Does it clearly communicate the effect of teacher behavior on students? Does it use the students as the subject?Discuss with your partner.

60 What might a student experience in a lesson planned for mastery?
61 Planning for Mastery: Beyond the Objective What do we want students to know and be able to do?How will they get there?What task will tell us they can do it?What should successful performance look like?Mastery objective (target)Activities (learning experiences)Assessment (product or performance)Criteria for success (characteristics of exemplary work; highest point on a rubric)
62 The purposes of the objective paragraph are to: capture the teacher’s thinking, planning, and delivery of instruction;record the activities that were planned to lead students to the mastery objective; andexplicitly present the data on student achievement of the mastery objective.The Objective / Planning Paragraph
63 The objective paragraph must answer… Was the lesson planned for mastery or not?What was the objective?How was it communicated?What activities did the teacher do to lead students to mastery of the objective?What are the assessment data on student mastery or progress toward mastery of the objective?Let’s evaluate some examples!
64 A lesson with a clear, communicated mastery objective is not always taught for mastery. A lesson without a clearly or clearly communicated mastery objective can be taught for mastery.
65 Observe for a match between… the stated objective;the lived/delivered lesson; andthe worthiness of the objective and lesson.
66 Giving Objective-Focused Feedback: The Stoplight NB p. 64RED: The objective does not reflect mastery thinking or planning (based on coverage, activity, or involvement thinking). The delivery of instruction does not match or support the intended objective.YELLOW- The objective MAY reflect mastery thinking or planning. The delivery of instruction does not match or support the intended objective.GREEN- The objective reflects mastery thinking or planning. The delivery of instruction and teacher actions fully match and support the intended mastery objective.

92 Making the Case for Literal Notes Narrative notes from a 6th grade math observation:“The teacher went over the homework.”Compare the literal notes on NB p. 165.What are the messages students receive from the teacher in each example?Which set of literal notes would be most valuable for giving a teacher feedback?Scenario 1 – Exceptionally skilledYou go into someone’s classroom, and they’re exceptionally skilled. You’re just very abstract; writing notes just cramps your style. You’re doing a post-observation conference – no notes; you didn’t take any. You say, “You were fabulous – everything you did was great – etc. Any questions? Sign here.” That’s the feedback. You with me so far?New scene – you’re still fabulous, highly skilled. I’m observing you with my legal pad. Whether it’s my learning style or not, it doesn’t matter. (I’ll give you lots of hints so that it becomes less painful.) You script. When it’s our conference, I say, “You had phenomenal management – let me tell you why. These are the ways you got attention – this was the effect on your kids. You used the following instructional strategies – this was the effect. You were fabulous – this is why.” What happens, because I gave you very literal notes, is very specific feedback – the gift of internal validation, if you’re very skilled, and you never know why. I now know what I did right – I’ve been validated – I can repeat it. I don’t have to be nervous before I’m observed.Scenario 2 – OKNew scene – OK, status quo. I’m not setting the world on fire; I’m not doing any harm. I’m under the radar – low end of boring, going through my paces, covering my content. Kids are on task. You’re not taking literal notes. You want to tell me something, but you can’t build any context for the suggestions you’ll give. I might consider them, but might not, because there’s no evidence that I need to take to heart. BUT – with scrupulous notes, at the post-obs conf, you’re telling me exactly what I did. I mean well, but I press on, because I don’t know what to do when kids don’t get it. That’s a shame. You now can give me very specific strategies of what to do for the kids who didn’t get it, and you’ll apply those strategies the next day, and I will be back to make sure that you use the strategies and they get it. You’ve given me a reason to follow through. I can be less defensive, react to the data.Scenario 3 – HelpI actually need help, some fixing. You’re not documenting me to get rid of me, but I need some serious improvement. Well, you don’t like to take notes. So you tell me I’m in need of improvement – and I say, “I’m calling my union rep – you have no evidence. You just don’t like me.” And you, the observer, are stuck. AS OPPOSED TOYou’re sarcastic “So, you decided to show up today.” “Look who’s brain is working today.” As a result, shutdown occurred.We must have literal notes to prove a point.Scenario 4Here’s a fourth scenario: you’re seriously damaging students. Historically, only this scenario merited the taking of literal notes – documenting negative teacher pedagogy. In reality, that’s less than 1% of the teaching population. If we view ourselves as instructional leaders, we’re not spending most of our time there. How are we going to boost the skills of the category 1 and 2 teachers? With very specific feedback – from literal notes.
94 First Steps in Analysis Read over and clean up your notes.Holistic impressionsWhat do you infer the lesson objective to be?What teaching strategies stood out as positive, negative or missing?What questions might you want to ask?Label important events by asking yourself what the teachers words and actions accomplished or intended to accomplish (framing - TST p. 163; NB p. 304)What claim can you make based on the evidence?
