A Framework For Teaching: Making the Most of Teacher Evaluation
Presented by: Charlotte Danielson, Karyn Wright

In this course teachers will learn a range of functions for the Framework, from supporting self-assessment and reflection, to providing formative assessment of teachers’ practice, to providing support for improving their practice. A panel of administrators with experience implementing the Framework in their schools and districts detail necessary steps to implementation and guidelines to facilitate the process. Educators will come away prepared to instigate and utilize this evaluation system that has been adopted and touted by so many—teachers and administrators alike.
