When it comes to classroom observations, your role as a school leader can resemble that of a field researcher. You take detailed, objective notes. You observe everything around you, from the objects in the classroom to the behavior of teachers and students. You analyze your findings and draw conclusions using a rigorous, pre-established framework. Most of all, you have an opportunity to gain groundbreaking insights that further your most important responsibility: ensuring students get the top-notch education they deserve. With that in mind, it’s important to evaluate those frameworks themselves, and find opportunities to augment them.
