Classroom Observation BLOG By Peter Garbus
As Principal, I make short observations to just about every teacher’s classroom every few weeks. I take notes on what I see students working on. I usually write down the learning target(s) as well, which our teachers try to make explicit for students so they know what they’re supposed to be learning. There may be more or fewer entries for each grade, so just look to the next cycle if you don’t see as much in the current one. Teachers and I hope that sharing these notes gives you a bit more flavor and texture of what your students are doing in school.
