Use a teacher evaluation checklist to review the performance of teachers in their classes. Afterwards, you can analyze them to give a feedback to the teachers but also for principals to learn more about the teachers at their school and their way of teaching.
Performing a teacher evaluation has many advantages, especially for the teacher himself/herself. But also for the principals and students. Here are some of them:
The better the evaluation form, the better you can estimate the evaluated teacher. That’s why you should follow these tips:
When evaluating a teacher, you should not only evaluate his/her actions and ways of teaching but also student’s reaction to it.
Think of all those factors too, when observing the teachers lessons. A good way would be to also give out a teacher evaluation form for students. That gives you another angle and point of view on the teacher’s performance.
After the evaluation process is over, you should definitely take some time for a feedback talk with the evaluated teacher. Go through the teaching evaluation form with him/her and give some advice.
Don’t forget to praise the aspects the teacher was good at to keep him/her motivated.
Especially for new teachers, it is extremely helpful to have a mentor, someone who supports them and gives them regular feedback on how to improve their lessons. That’s why you as the evaluator should take the role of a mentor and help them understand their responsibilities as a teacher and give them some advice.
When talking to the teacher focus on the approvements and give him/her an improvement plan.
