Live Blog Chat: From Teacher Evaluation to Support: A District’s Journey
Lincoln County, Tenn., used its cut of federal Race to the Top cash to create a new type of staff-development position: a teacher-evaluation director. Renee Pryor, one of Education Week’s 2016 Leaders to Learn From, works with novice teachers and those who have been flagged for performance in the evaluation system to strengthen their practice. And she uses an array of tools—videos, collaborative conversations, and coaching—to make the process supportive rather than confrontational.
In this chat, Pryor and the district’s former superintendent talk about the development of this evaluative role and how teachers have responded to it.
