Teacher Management Indicators Preparation: The teacher plans for delivery of the lesson relative to short- term and long-term objectives. Who determines these objectives? How are these objectives shared?
Routine The teacher uses a minimum of class time for non-instructional routines thus maximizing time on task. What things are you doing manually that could/should be automated? If you were to reflect on your administrative practices, would you delete change anything that you currently do?
Discipline The teacher clearly defines expected behavior (encourages positive behavior and controls negative behavior). How do I handle disruptive behavior? What do I do to motivate my kids to behave?
Learning Environment The teacher establishes rapport with the students and provides a pleasant, safe and orderly climate conducive to learning. Do I teach in such a way that it engages students and makes them look forward to coming to my class? Is my class a “safe place” for kids to learn, make mistakes, and then grow?
Teacher Instructional Indicators Establishes Objectives: The teacher communicates the instructional objectives to students. Do the students know what you are teaching and why? Do the students have any impact into course content?
Establishes Objectives The teacher communicates the instructional objectives to students. What are we doing today (tomorrow, the rest of the year) and why are we doing it? Can the students tell mom/dad/others what they are doing and why?
Explains Content The teacher teaches the objectives through a variety of methods. Is each day a little different from the other day or is it same song, new verse? Are you constantly updating your skills and know the latest presentation methods?
Explains Directions The teacher gives directions that are clearly stated and are related to the learning objectives. How are you sure that everyone understands what you have told them to do? Do you ask someone in the class to give the directions you just gave to insure that everyone “gets it”?
