CCSS Walkthrough Feedback Form Available

Our consulting team has developed a useful walkthrough tool, built using the Forms tool within Google Drive.  This form allows you to choose an emphasis on Literacy Instructional Shifts, Mathematics Instructional Shifts, or 21st Century Skills, and offers feedback for teachers to hone their skills.  

The form is not intended to be an evaluative tool, and both teacher and observer can use the tool together for the benefit of the teacher and students.

If you'd like to receive a copy of the CCSS Walkthrough Feedback Form to edit and use for your own district or school, please email Steve Woods for more information and assistance.

We're not alone in seeing the value of creating walkthrough tools using Google.  Read Michael Graham's article on TICAL to see another method of gathering classroom data using your mobile device.
