Some things aren’t what they seem 2
The Twisted Cord Illusion
Do the vertical lines appear to bend?
Does your lesson observation system appear to work?
For many providers, the evidence that their lesson observation system is working is in the trend data for observation grades. But this is largely flawed, unreliable data. Worse still, the whole process of grading can mean that your system is all about accountability, not about learning and improvement. Just talk to the staff who were graded lower than their own expectations to find out whether they are now revved up to invest in the development of their skills.. Your system is really about these people.
Every system has an impact. But are you having the impact you want?
In the Transformational Lesson Observation session, we answer this question and much more.
