Overview of the Frameworks 26 An instructional or leadership framework provides a common language and vision of quality teaching/leading that is shared by everyone in the district and is aligned to the eight principal and teacher criteria created by E2SSB 6696. Section (2)(e) and 6(e) of ESSB 5895 states: By September 1, 2012, the superintendent of public instruction shall identify up to three preferred instructional and leadership frameworks that support the revised evaluation system. The instructional frameworks shall be research-based and establish definitions or rubrics for each of the four summative performance ratings for each evaluation criteria. Each school district must adopt one of the preferred instructional and leadership frameworks and post the selection on the district’s website. The superintendent of public instruction shall establish a process for approving minor modifications or adaptations to a preferred instructional or leadership framework that may be proposed by a school district.

Learning II: Understanding the Relationship Between Criteria and Frameworks Determine the relationship between the revised teacher and principal evaluation criteria and the frameworks 28
Learning I Activity: Criteria Placemat and Frameworks Sort 29 Sort the dimensions cards from your instructional framework onto the Criteria Placemat. Cards can be used more than once. Check your answers with the Framework Support Document.
Learning Activity I: Discussion 30 Did your team get the dimensions sorted close to the Framework Support document? Were any of the dimensions difficult to align to criteria? Any significant “ah-ha” moments?
So what does it look like in a classroom setting? 31
Criteria & Dimensions in Action 32 Eight groups will describe what this criterion (and the domains/ dimensions aligned to it) looks like in action. Create a five-column chart with Criteria Heading and with two or three bullets describing this criterion in action for each teacher type. K5th grade literacy 7th grade math 10th grade science 9 – 12 P.E.
Debrief: Criteria and Frameworks 33 Each criteria group shares their chart. For discussion: What is the same across your bullets for your teacher type? Are there any significant differences for practice at different grade levels or for different content areas? How do the frameworks and criteria provide a common language across different grade levels and content areas for teachers? Do you think our conclusions be similar if we did this set of activities for principals? Would we be able to look at an elementary school principal in the same way we look at a high school principal?
Implementing Articulate the ways an instructional and leadership framework can operationalize the revised evaluation system to improve teaching and learning Analyze the instructional frameworks to support district decision- making in selecting an instructional framework and a leadership framework 34
Connecting Back to the Readiness Continuum - Tasks We have district a instructional framework, but it may not be understood in the context of an evaluation system, and we need to grow our knowledge of framework and links to criteria. Tasks 1.Communications Checklist and Plan 2.Educational PowerPoint Goal: Create a communications plan and an educational PowerPoint that highlights the criteria alignment. 35
Implementing Activities Debrief 36 Sharing your Next Steps: 1. One decision you made today (could be a key decision, a preliminary decision, a change of course, etc.) 2. One of the immediate next steps you are taking when you return to your district
What’s Next? Wednesday, March 13th 37 Module 3 is scheduled: Applying Multiple Measures of Performance, however – Michaela Miller is scheduled to be here.

Whip Around and Plus/Delta Debrief 39 Whip Around: One significant “ah-ha moment” today Take a few minutes and create at least two sticky notes for the Plus/Delta Chart on your way out. Plus: What was a real “plus” of today’s session? What went well and should be repeated? Delta: Where is there room for improvement and change?
