The Danielson Group
New York Times
This program highlighted NYC's pilot use of the Danielson Group framework as a key component of the multiple measures they use to improve classroom teaching.
Participants were guided through the complexities of the revised system for principal and teacher evaluation, which uses student test scores on state tests as a measure of teacher performance. Panelists explored what good teaching looks like; how the use of the Framework improves teaching; The challenges the City faces in implementing the framework; and how funders can help surmount those challenges to improve teaching in all City schools.
