Do you struggle remembering every single component of your lesson? Does your administration conduct unannounced observations? In Tennessee, we have unannounced observations as a part of our evaluation model. Therefore, I feel like I really need to be extra prepared each day to meet each component of our evaluation rubric. Not only am I thinking about a possible observation, I am also thinking about high-quality, engaging instruction for my students. The way I now structure my lessons promotes much deeper thinking opportunities, effective partner talk, and meaningful tasks. To make sure I hit all components necessary for high-quality instruction, I plug everything into PowerPoint lessons. It's a little extra time up front, but it will save your sanity throughout the week.
