Hi guys, I was posed with this question in a graduate class recently and I am responsible for the "dynamics of the classroom" section as it applies to the question "What does good teaching look like (to a principal)?" The other categories are Differentiation, delivery of content and classroom management, which makes it a little hard because there is defiinite overlap in the categories. So, what do you think? Here's my list so far.... - Does the teacher have a rapport with the students? - What is the established classroom culture? - Is there a connection between the teacher and students and students and other students? - Is there interaction? - Do the students seem engaged? - Is there mutual respect? - Is there movement around the classroom? Circulation and scanning? Not just calling on the center - Are students challenged? - Does the teacher provide positive feedback?
