This template was created as part of a pilot program to encourage greater participation in the classroom setting. The goal of our program is to increase comprehension from active learning each and every day. When creating this template, I had trouble locating templates for colleagues to use when observing other colleagues - in other words teachers observing teachers. There are plenty of templates for administrators to use, but few for educators to use.
This template is designed to encourage conversation, be used in a non-evaluative way, and draw attention to ways in which teachers create an active learning environment.
Recently I was awarded a grant to fund putting this project (pilot program) into motion. Feel free to make this template your own and provide feedback as to how you will use this. A colleague of mine, mentioned that this would be great for a new teacher mentor program as well!
