Evaluating ALL Teachers of English Learners and Students With Disabilities
Teacher evaluation can be a valuable tool for evaluators and teachers alike. But it should never be used in a “one-size-fits-all” manner, especially when evaluating all teachers who work with the nation’s growing numbers of English learners (ELs) and students with disabilities.
Just as these diverse students’ needs require nuanced teaching methods, the evaluations of all teachers who work with these students require unique considerations. Such considerations are precisely what you’ll learn in this comprehensive, action-oriented book. Drawing on a focused array of authoritative research on supporting the success of ELs and students with disabilities, case studies, and action plans, the authors detail
- Four principles for inclusive teacher evaluation of diverse learners that are compatible with the Danielson and Marzano frameworks
- Sample specialized “look-fors” that evaluators can use and adapt to recognize effective teaching of ELs and students with disabilities
- Strategies for coaching teachers of ELs and students with disabilities who need more support reaching these learners
