Teacher Evaluation

“Just as a country is as good as its people, so its citizens are only as good as their teachers.”
~ Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore

As the boundaries that once separated nations dissolve and the world seems to become a global nation, it is imperative that U.S. teachers attend quality preparation programs that prepare them to become effective educators. It is through evaluation that teachers learn to become more effective educators. All too often teacher evaluation is a process that is not adequately embraced. From novice to expert teacher, this is a step that can no longer be overlooked.

Post your five-paragraph response to the following questions:

  • What do international best practices suggest should be established to ensure fair and effective teacher evaluation systems?
  • Does your district or state have a career ladder that enables expert teachers to take leadership roles in school improvement and teacher development?
  • How will the system you have designed be adapted to bring it more in line with best practices?

Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
