1. Examples of student assessments that I created specifically for my third graders. This includes any pre-tests and post-tests that I used as formative assessments. I also included a picture about my “swimming skills” bulletin board. When we began our unit on multiplication, my students rated their multiplication skills (using swimming as an analogy) at the beginning and end of the unit.
Once all my evidence was inserted into my binder, I then filled out the evidence log.
Similar to domain two, the areas of teaching are all observable during your formal and informal observations and walk throughs. I also included evidence for the different components of this domain in my binder.
Domain four for the Danielson framework is called “Professional Responsibilities.” This domain includes the following:
I created this file because it was my year to be formally observed by my principal. Although my district provided some training for the Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teacher Evaluation, I wanted to learn more about the tools that would be used to assess me as an educator. As a result, I spent a lot time on my own researching more about the framework, the checklists and rubrics for determining the difference between the teacher ratings. I then started to gather evidence, or documentation, for domains one and four. I quickly found that my National Board Certification came in handy for this part of the evaluation process! (When I certified for the National Boards, I had to create a portfolio and also include evidence to “prove” what I was writing in my entries.) I then organized my evidence and paperwork into a binder, ready to show off to my administration during my pre- and post-conference. I hope that this file will help ease the stress that sometimes comes when having to put together a binder- being formally observed can be stressful enough!
Included in this (80 plus page) file is the following:
1. A 5 page PowerPoint file that allows you to insert text boxes and type in your own name t personalize the your binder cover page, and also insert text boxes to type in your evidence for the 4 domains
2. A 77 page PDF of the following:
– Directions and tips for how to create your own binder
– Four colorful cover pages for each of the different domains
– Several photographs of ideas for what I used as evidence for the domains
– Ideas for artifacts/evidence for the different components of teacher responsibility
– A list of all the elements for the 22 components of teacher responsibilities, which define the content and the structure of the discipline- for you to add as pages into your binder
** Note- The ideas presented in this file are to give you inspiration and suggest what you can use for your own evidence. This resource gives you guidance to personalize your binder according to YOUR students and YOUR teaching style!
