Transcript of Teacher Evaluation - Instruction: Component 3b

Level 1

Using Questioning
Classroom Evidence
Here is what “distinguished teachers” at PHS do in classes everyday:
In Mr. Noelte’s art classes,
students can formulate questions and answers without being the center of attention while receiving prompts from the teacher and fellow students.
Elements of Component 3b:
Discussion, with the teacher stepping out of the central, mediating role

Focus on the reasoning exhibited by students in discussion, both in give-and-take with the teacher and with their classmates

High levels of student participation in discussion

Teacher Evaluation
Discussion Techniques
Effective teachers promote learning through discussion. Students should engage in discussion explaining and justifying their reasoning and conclusions based on evidence.
Teachers use questions to challenge students to examine their premises, to build logical arguments, and to critique the arguments of others.

In a true discussion, teachers:

pose a question that invites
all students’ views
to be heard
enable students to
engage in discussion directly with one another

build further questions on students’ responses and insist that students examine their premises,
build logical argument
, and
the argument of others

Quality of Questions/Prompts

Questions cause students to think and reflect, to deepen their understanding and to test their ideas against those of their classmates.
When questions are of
higher quality
, fewer
questions are needed.

Time for students to
about their responses
Time for students to
on the comments of their classmates
Time for students to
deepen their understanding

Student Participation

Questions of high cognitive challenge, formulated by both students and teacher

Questions with multiple correct answers or multiple approaches, even when there is a single correct answer

Effective use of student responses and ideas
