Is Evaluation A Valuable Tool?
#Whatisschool, Thursday November 6, 7PM EST
In a world that is constantly changing, we find ourselves in a battle to keep up. Evaluating practices to ensure we are at the top of our game. We all need people to give us feedback, that’s how we improve ….

This week #whatisschool delves into evaluation. Are we using evaluation to improve our teaching? What implications does evaluation have on the teaching profession? What does your ‘ideal’ evaluation look like?
Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.” And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers 
can get better with smart feedback.

How do we know how to get better? How do we develop our skills? Join us for #whatisschool this week as we delve deep into the heart of evaluation.
