Interesting Article on Teacher Observation

 Response: Ways to Observe Teachers Without Demoralizing Them – Larry Ferlazzo

An interesting article by Larry Ferlazzo that looks at why Teachers have perceived observations negatively and how you can move the culture of your school forward. I particularly like the suggestion by Tom Krawczewicz.  

 
We had a very successful experience by implementing an observation program recently. Each department member was asked to observe someone else in the department and notes things that they learned FROM observing their colleague.

Later we met as a department and shared what we learned with everyone. It was a very positive experience and we not only took something away from the actual observation but we also learned something about each of the other people in our department via the comments of the observers.”
