The Teacher Observations assignment is intended to provide scholars the opportunity to observe two different teachers and evaluate their effectiveness. The actual evaluation reports should be completed on the:
WR6 - Teacher Observations
Read carefully, follow directions, emulate the example.
Please include a copy of the lesson plan for each of the lessons you observed. If the observed teacher does not have a lesson plan, YOU should write what you beleive the plan should have been, based on what you observed and discussed and with the teacher.
Please indicate the following factors that apply to the teaching you observed: (1) typical number of students in each class, (2) demographics of the student population including "special needs", and (3) specific factors relating to pedagogy or andragogy that have been considered.
As background for both WR2 and WR6, please read Ronald Boyd's article on :
Please follow the FORMAT of the example, but be as honest and perceptive as possible about your description of what you observed.
When completing WR6, don't forget your "Upgrade Indicator."
