K-12 Teacher Evaluation Conference
Charting the Course: Approaches to Teacher Evaluation for K-12 Dance Educators
May 16-18, 2014 (Friday to Sunday)
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Early Bird Registration Deadline Extended!
Come to this special topic conference on teacher evaluation and lend your voice! This is an opportunity to take action as a unified body to work to inform the teacher evaluation system in this country. From this conference we will:
- Draft a position paper for NDEO on defining appropriate teacher evaluation practices for dance education;
- Create a strategies document that will provide ideas on how to guide administrators on what to look for when evaluating dance education (i.e. What should administrators look for when observing classes?);
- Identify a list of multiple measures that fairly assess teacher effectiveness in dance;
- Collect information on effective practices and evaluation systems in other states and districts.
With this you will be armed with material to justify suggested changes in the system for your school, district or state!
Key Note Speaker (Friday 6-8pm): Stanley Rabinowitz – Director of the Assessment & Standards Development Services at WestEd
