There are three main ways to use these forms:
Whole Class Observation Form
These forms can be used daily or weekly with any subject. By combining observation or conference notes for your whole class on one page it is easy to look for and find patterns in student learning (both strengths and weaknesses). This form can be used for one lesson or a series of lessons.
These observations forms are intended to be used as a window into what the students are learning and what students still need to learn. It is used to guide instruction. If you are not able to take notes on each student, DON’T worry! There is always tomorrow.
Whole Class Conference Form:
You can also use these forms to take notes while meeting with students. When you use these forms as a conference tool, your focus will probably be more broad then when using these forms to record observations as explained above because unless you have unlimited time, you probably will not be able to meet with all your students in one day. It might take up to a week to meet with each student! This form makes it easy to see who you have met with and who you still need to meet with.
Individual Student Observation/Conference Form
These forms can also be used as conference or observation forms for individual students. You might have a form for each student in your class for any given subject or maybe just for a few kids who you want to collect detailed data on.
Instead of looking for patterns across the class, you will look for specific patterns of student learning for one student. What are they starting to master? What do they still need to learn?
Note: I left extra space at the top of the page to allow space for the clip on a clipboard!
