Since I am a Reading Coach and need to observe reading classrooms throughout my school, I developed this informal Reading Coach's Observation. I wanted my reading teachers to be comfortable with me coming in to observe them and to make suggestions. It is an informal observation data document that allows you to record the postive things you observe, the suggestions you may have for the teacher, and/or questions you may have about the lesson. It also gives you an area to debrief with the teacher and to plan together the next steps you are going to take to enhance her/his literacy classroom. I printed this form as a triplicate, so I could give a copy of the document to my principal, one to the teacher, and one for my records.
