Teacher Evaluation – The hot button during the NJEA Convention this year is teacher evaluation. Districts across the state are implementing the new evaluation regulations under the TEACH NJ Act. Many districts have adopted the Danielson model for teacher evaluation. Charlotte Danielson explains an overview of the system and offers guidance on how to merge demands for accountability with professional learning. The ideal model involves collaboration between observer and staff. Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf is also on hand to address educator’s concerns about the implementation of the new regulations.
