What Defines and Undermines Effective Teaching?

Look Fors and Red Flags When Evaluating Teachers: A Comprehensive Guide to Identifying Key Indicators and Potential Pitfalls

This guide, developed during the original Effectiveness Project training, consolidates "Look Fors" and "Red Flags" for each performance standard. It provides clear guidance on key indicators that define effective teaching and those that undermine it, helping evaluators and educators maintain a thorough and balanced evaluation process. The document covers six standards: Professional Knowledge, Instructional Planning, Instructional Delivery, Assessment For and Of Learning, Learning Environment, and Professionalism. Each standard is accompanied by specific "Look Fors" and "Red Flags," aiding in the identification of both exemplary and problematic teaching practices.
