Lesson Observations are a big part of professional growth
Everyone has to be observed as part of every career stage progression, whether that’s graduate, proficient, highly accomplished, or lead.
And we might only have one lesson… or worse… 20 minutes to showcase our teaching and our student’s learning.
There is so much to think about. The planning, the resources and then SHOWING why you made those choices in the first place. Not all of that can happen in a 20 minute slot.
So, how can we make sure that IMPACT is evident during that lesson observation?
In this episode of The Reflective Teacher Podcast, I’m going to share with you some top tips to make sure that, whenever you’re observed, you know how to showcase your kids and their growth in your lesson.
This episode is great for a mentor teacher who’s looking to see how they can better frame a lesson observation. It is wonderful for our uni students who are working on their graduate teacher portfolios (sooo… many examples in here for you!) AND it’s even got some tips for those of you who are preparing for observation at stage two if HAT or LEAD.
During the episode, I share one of my own lesson plans and the resources I gave an observer in one of my most successful lesson observations EVER.
