Teacher Voices Webinar: Teachers Talk About Teacher Evaluation
DateMonday, June 13, 2011 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm
On June 13, the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center and Teach Plus held a webinar about school reform and teacher evaluation systems. Moderated by Heather Peske, National Director of Programs at Teach Plus, four practicing teachers discussed how their schools are implementing teacher evaluation models, how the models are being used, the strengths and weaknesses of each program, and what each teacher has learned during the process.

Over the last several years, the federal government, states and districts have moved to a wide variety of teacher evaluation models. In the next year, many additional states will roll out new mandates in this area. While the purposes and the methods of each system may differ, there can be no doubt that these all have the potential to reshape many aspects of our schools and much of the teaching and learning process. It is an issue that will have a very significant impact on our students’ futures.
