Dedicated to Teachers


The Need for Making Teacher Evaluation Work

E08879_Gabriel and Woulfin_Bookcover_0358With new-generation teacher evaluation policies in place, the evaluation process may seem as daunting as ever—for both teachers and evaluators. And when both sides have a different understanding of what teacher evaluation looks like in the context of literacy instruction, evaluations can end up entirely unproductive.

As Making Teacher Evaluation Work points out, it doesn't have to be this way.  Authors Rachael Gabriel and Sarah Woulfin walk you through the entire teacher evaluation process and offer context and strategies aimed at improving the process for everyone involved. The authors clearly show how effective evaluations provide the foundation for collaboration that improves literacy instruction, promotes teacher growth, and supports schoolwide improvement.

In the following video, Rachael and Sarah discuss the need for this book in response to the new teacher evaluation policies, and their goal of making the policies clearer and more manageable for both teachers and administrators.
