Every year teachers are asked to show in more depth exactly what they do in their classrooms on a daily basis. Teaching is time consuming enough without compiling binder after binder of samples, directions, certifications, rubrics, time tables, student logs, parent logs, etc...
Many states are turning to a standard observation or evaluation procedures. PA recently choose the Danielson Model and I witnessed teachers trying to gather all of their paper materials, make copies, hole punch, carry around, and store binders worth of information just to complete their evaluation for the year.
Since my motto is work smarter not harder I immediately went to work. By the end of this process instead of having to keep a binder describing all of the amazing things you do as a teacher you will have one electronic folder that easily be updated, can be kept on a computer, dropped on a flash drive, or uploaded to a cloud sharing device, and the best thing is you can never lose it or have pages fall out!
Included in this folder is not only a time saver, but a life changer. Everything you need to complete an evaluation portfolio is included.
A PowerPoint Hub is already organized, hyperlinked, and ready for you to add your own materials to create a "Choose Your Own Evidence" experience for the administrator reviewing your portfolio.
A folder for each of the 22 components for all four domains are included for easy organization of documents. *Note: these are for organizational purposes, no actual evidence is provided to be used. Examples of what to put in each component is included below*
Directions (included as a preview) for the entire process of creating your portfolio and a graphic explanation of the hyperlinked PowerPoint Hub.
The final aspect of your purchase is worth what you are paying by itself. Each domain folder contains a sample evidence list for each component. Included you get 42 example pieces of evidence for the six components for domain 1, 32 for the five components of domain 2, 30 for the five components of domain 3, and 37 for the six components of domain 4. That is right, you get a grand total of 141 example pieces of evidence for your evaluation portfolio!
Currently my district has instituted my electronic portfolio template as the way for teachers to hand in their evaluation portfolio and I've conducted multiple workshops on how to create the portfolio for our district of over 600 educators.
Too many educators have insisted that these materials are too good for me not to put this on TpT for others to use, and I've finally taken the plunge.
I refused to believe the line that you could only "vacation in distinguished" because the process was so in depth. I created a fast, in-depth, organized, and easy way to summarize everything that a teacher does that just so happens to follow the state evaluation procedures perfectly. Using my own methods not only did I "vacation in distinguished", I "bought a home in distinguished" as I finished the year evaluated over all as "distinguished" in each of the four domains.
