Classroom observations are a vital component in maintaining and improving instruction! This Classroom Observation Form is designed to help you quickly focus your observations on the most meaningful elements of instruction.
The Learning Cycle section reflects Schmoker's Effective Teaching model. Additional sections include Classroom Environment, Communication, Instructional Practices, and Technology. The simple checklist-based format is a single page (front and back), allowing you to quickly and easily document what you are observing.
Don't forget, the most important part is actually doing your observations on a regular basis, and discussing the results with your teachers. Like the exercise equipment that litters American homes, even the best product does you no good unless you actually use it!
