Onions get a bad wrap. We use the layers of this wonderful root as a symbol of our complexities and their numerous causes.
Teacher evaluation is complex. You have to think about the task, the setting, the learners, the content. So much.
Yet we persist becuase we know focusing on the quality of teaching improves student achievement. It's one of the few variables of learning leaders can affect.
Thus tracking the type of feedback our administrators provide their teachers is critical. It could be a Department chair at a university supervising online instruction, a vice principal evaluating teachers, or a program director checking on fidelity of lessons.
Everyone can get better at delivering feedback. That is our mission at ReVIEW Talent Feedback System. We want to help you monitor, observe and coach your leaders on providing actionable feedback.
To this end we created and use the ReVISION Learning Supervisory Continuum and built it right into our system.
You coach your leaders on:
- tying evidence to performance indicators
- using both qualitative and quantitative evidence
- collecting evidence of meaningful learning
- connecting evidence to key levers of growth
- reducing bias
- using feedback as a comprehensive learning tool
Let's celebrate and plan for the complexitites of teaching. Much like the onion throwing just a little bit of feedback work into the frying pan can greatly improve a recipe, and we can get there without any tears.
