Think about the Nix the Tricks text, discussions we've had, and the video that we viewed. Review the observation tools linked below and/or conduct some research of your own into observation tools that could be useful. What would we hope to see in a classroom that is focused on building conceptual understanding? What would you like the person observing your lesson to focus on? The expectation for this session is to develop a tool for your observer to use during the lesson that you teach. You may decide to use all or part of a tool that has already been created, modify a tool, or develop your own.
Use this folder to upload the observation tool that you will use. Spend some time reviewing what others have chosen.
