The New handbook of teacher evaluation : assessing elementary and secondary school teachers by Jason Millman( Book )

35 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 25 chapters in this handbook examine evaluation purposes, processes, and methods, and discuss how they shape the implementation and outcomes of evaluation. Following an introduction in chapter 1, the nine chapters in Part I consider the purposes of evaluation. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 are concerned with the evaluation processes that determine selection into teaching: preservice evaluation, licensure, and certification. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 focus on how evaluation may support the development of greater teaching competencies for beginning and veteran teachers. Chapters 9 and 10 consider school accountability and school improvement. Part II examines the various methods used to evaluate teachers, along with their strengths and limitations as applied to the many purposes of evaluation. Chapters 11 and 12 deal with two methods for evaluating inservice teachers: classroom observations and ratings of classroom performance, while chapter 13 deals with teacher self-assessment. Chapters 14 and 15 deal with less widely used methods, the use of student test scores and the use of teacher portfolios. Chapters 16 through 18 address the use of formal tests to evaluate teachers for licensure or certification, and chapter 19 discusses combining evaluation data from multiple sources for decision making. In Part III, some of the system-wide concerns that developers and users of evaluation plans must confront are discussed. Chapters explore legal, ethical, administrative, and economic aspects of teacher evaluation, and ways to improve and support teacher evaluation. The use of personnel standards to improve teacher evaluation is also discussed. Each chapter contains references. (Contains six figures and four tables.) (SLD)

Empowered educators : how high-performing systems shape teaching quality around the world by Linda Darling-Hammond( )

16 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three teachers huddle around a laptop in the school library at Kranji secondary school in Singapore. Rosmiliah, a senior teacher, and her two colleagues are engaged in an intense discussion of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and how to incorporate them into their teaching of geography. The trio constitutes just one of many teacher groups working on year-long projects to create new and innovative learning resources. This rich learning environment for teachers is not the work of a single innovative school or principal: Kranji is much like any other neighborhood school in Singapore. The opportunities for teachers to collaborate and engage in professional learning are embedded systemically in Singapore's education policy. While Singapore is well-known internationally for its strong investment and thoughtful designs for education, it is not alone. A growing body of research has found that high-performing countries have in common a set of strategies for developing, supporting, and sustaining the ongoing learning and development of their teachers and school leaders. These countries not only train individual educators well, they deliberately organize the sharing of expertise among teachers and administrators within and across schools, so that the system as a whole becomes ever more effective. And they not only cultivate innovative practices, they incorporate them into the system as a whole, rather than leaving them as exceptions at the margins. This book describes how this seemingly magical work is done: how a number of high-performing educational systems create a coherent set of policies designed to ensure quality teaching in all communities- and how the results of these policies are manifested in practice. Across three continents and five countries, EMPOWERED EDUCATORS examines seven jurisdictions that have worked to develop comprehensive teaching policy systems: Singapore and Finland, the states of New South Wales and Victoria in Australia, the provinces of Alberta and Ontario in Canada, and the province of Shanghai in China. Linda Darling-Hammond and a team of esteemed scholars offer lessons learned in a number of areas that shape the teaching force and the work of teachers: recruitment, teacher preparation, induction and mentoring, professional learning, teacher feedback and appraisal, and career and leadership development."--

5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph examines issues that will shape teacher education programs in the future. Following a foreword by Robert M. McClure, the monograph is organized into three chapters. The first, "Perestroika and Professionalism: The Case for Restructuring Teacher Preparation" (Linda Darling-Hammond), focuses on changes wrought by school restructuring, I.E., the creation of learner-centered schools, and implications for changes in the teacher's role and consequently for teacher education. The second, "Learning from the 'New' Schools: Lessons for Teacher Education" (Gary A. Griffin), discusses school-level issues in restructuring, rethinking, and re-enacting teacher education. The final chapter, "The Case for Restructuring Teacher Preparation" (Arthur E. Wise), espouses seven propositions to promote education reform: (1) intensive teacher education; (2) rigorous teacher certification and licensing standards; (3) increased teacher involvement in decision-making processes that affect how they teach; (4) teacher unions with a better balance between inherent responsibilities to protect members and long-term responsibility for advancing the profession; (5) teacher professionalism that demands an accountability system; (6) improved teachers' salaries and working conditions; and (7) more attention to the less fortunate of teachers' clientele.
