For this assignment, create a checklist you might use when conducting a 3-Minute Walk Through during instructional supervision. Using this tool generates an unofficial document that is designed to assist the teacher by serving as a resource for improving instruction. It can also be used to conference with the ineffective teacher. The resulting checklist provides you with a productive outcome of a visit, instead of encouraging you to just stand and watch passively as teachers teach. Depending on the purpose and desired outcomes for teacher assessment, this type of assessment method could be adapted to apply to your own work setting. If you intend to use such a checklist, be sure to share it with the teachers so that they know your expectations.
