Where To Start In Using Self-Assessment To Improve Your Teaching
It's almost impossible to be a good teacher over time without constantly learning, because even if you teach the same subjects year after year, each class, and each student brings different challenges. Self-assessment of your own skills and teaching methods is a critical aspect of "keeping up".
Where To Start: Forms And Checklists
Fortunately, you can tailor a self-assessment process to your own needs, and there are a number of available forms and checklists you can use, free of charge. Some are really short, and others are more extensive, and even reflect some of the criteria that States and Provinces use to certify teachers.
We've pulled together a variety of these teacher evaluation forms developed specially for teachers to use on their own. You may want to check each out, and download your own copies, to determine which one or ones make the most sense.
