Those of you who have already had an observation under the new Danielson rubric, I am interested in your experiences.
Was this a formal or informal observation?
Did you use a suggested lesson plan format?
What was the pre-observation conference like?
What was the lesson observation like?
Did you allow it to be filmed?
What feedback did you get from the principal or assistant principal?
How were you rated on the different domains?
Did you feel anything was unfair?
Did you feel the process was overall fair or unfair?
Did you feel the ratings were justified or not?
Did you protest anything you were told or any rating you were given?
And anything else you might want to pass along.
I'm working on a future post about the essential unworkability of the Danielson rubric, one which will take aim at the education reformers for pushing this thing, but will also aim at the UFT, AFT and NEA for promoting it as well.
And we may have a thing or two to say about Ms. Charlotte herself.
