Instructional Design Questions

The district-level committee charged with revising/creating a new teacher evaluation instrument has begun a study of The Art and Science of Teaching by Robert J. Marzano (2007).  The book is based upon the following 10 questions.  I am not sure how these will inform the work of this committee, but it is possible that they could be central to teacher development, expectations for teaching, and teacher evaluation.
  1. What will I do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress, and celebrate success?
  2. What will I do to help students effectively interact with new knowledge?
  3. What will I do to help students practice and deepen their understanding of new knowledge?
  4. What will I do to help students generate and test hypotheses about new knowledge?
  5. What will I do to engage students?
  6. What will I do to establish or maintain classroom rules and procedures?
  7. What will I do to recognize and acknolwedge adhereence and lack of adherence to classroom rules and procedures?
  8. What will I do to establish and maintain effective relationships with students?
  9. What will I do to communicate high expectations for all students?
  10. What will I do to develop effective lessons organized into a coherent unit?
