A goal we have for this school year is to encourage and support teachers to initiate and complete peer-observations. The feedback provided by colleagues will be beneficial to all involved. Our plan includes initiating a discussion during our collaborative day on October 24th. We will encourage our teachers to “invite” a colleague to observe their teaching. The teacher will set the “focus area” for the observation. It will be critical for the teachers to have time to discuss the observation. The Principal and Vice-Principal will cover classes to help this process.
We will also ask teachers for input into the planning of our School Based Collaborative Days. We usually ask for input, but we will begin asking for more formal input through the use of a google form. Teachers will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. We will use this feedback as we plan our day.
