Teacher evaluations, continued

Just links, really. 

As I'd hoped, Pittsburgh Public Schools has graciously published their RISE rubric online.  The PDF is here.  Apparently the RISE acronym is original. 

The National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (the people who put together the news stream I got the previous post from)  has their own set of standards, called the Core Principles.  If one were interested, one could download them here.  Scroll down to "What Teachers Should Know and Be Able To Do."

All of these teacher evaluation rubrics are very similar in content.  They vary a little on specificity vs. generality, as well as on focus and what one would want to do with the information.  But they all basically agree on what good teaching generally looks like.
