The teacher chooses.
1 formal, 3 drive-bys, one unannounced (these are minimums)
6 drive-bys, one unannounced (these are minimums).
Sounds like “gotcha” to me.
We’ll see the details when they are posted.
What is a “drive-by”? Not a full class period?
In my experience drive-bys have lasted as little as two minutes to no more than ten. Some principal’s write-up reviews of what they observed during their drive-by and place it in the teacher’s file. In my opinion, it’s unusual that an observer can give meaningful feedback after such a limited view.
Thanks. So, basically it’s an observation that might in principle be able to detect gross negligence but offers no plausible benefit to instructors. Wonderful.
Precisely. So for the folks who are conducting their practice in a sincere manner, it’s demoralizing. It also easily lends itself–as you can imagine–to the collection of “ammunition” by principals who have a personal dislike of a particular teacher(s) for whatever reason.
Delete my stray apostrophe in principals…
