Can We Evaluate Teachers Based on Factors Teachers Completely Control? is the title of my latest BAM! Radio Show.
It’s a ten-minute conversation I had with Ben Spielberg and Ted Appel, the principal of the school where I teach. Our talk focuses on the idea of measuring inputs — in other words, identifying what practices we know make up good teaching and evaluating educators on whether they are implementing those practices.
This show is a follow-up to my Education Week Teacher post, Using Teacher Evaluations ‘to Promote Growth.’
