Evaluating teaching based on videotapes

Thanks Questioner. Just another idea for Lippert and her buddies.

Teachers---be wary of this site.

by site do you mean the pure site or NY times?

Hey, if they get really good at this, maybe they can have computers "view" the videotapes and use some sort of rubric to score teachers!

I'd surely want my kid taught by someone vetted by someone watching a videotape! Not.

The anger/paranoia level of some of the teachers posting here is a sad indicator of the climate in our schools. It's trust no one, in fact, actively distrust everyone until proven otherwise. In this district, right now, that's your safest bet.

And that's no way to have your job feel. We'll be lucky in this district to attract and then keep good teachers anymore. Anyone who can put up with this regime is either going to have sky-high stress levels or be someone who just does whatever they're told, whether or not it makes sense and whether or not it changes every day.
