How do you write a post teaching evaluation?

Answer

A post teaching evaluation can be written either as a self-evaluation by the person who did the lesson or by an outside observer. In either case, it is essential to know the goals of the lesson, and to establish the criteria or aspects of the teaching that you are going to evaluate. The introduction would probably include: the goals of the lesson, information about the students being taught, and any pertinent information about the teacher, as well as any special circumstances of this lesson. For example, that the teacher is a student teacher being evaluated on their first lesson, or a tenure-track teacher who has taught this grade for many years but is now trying a new curriculum.

The last sentence of the introduction can include a thesis sentence which would summarize the evaluation. Here is an example:

Mrs. Ruiz clearly explained how to write roadmap thesis sentences using a variety of examples and involving the class in an active discussion, whole-class participation in writing exercises and individual practice.

Following the introduction, the body of the essay should be divided into paragraphs which discuss the goals, or ideal teaching that should take place, and then describe how well that lesson met those goals. Here are some sample topic sentences, which would be elaborated on with examples:

Mrs. Ruiz followed good teaching practices by actively engaging her students and giving them many opportunities to practice the activity before being evaluated.

Mrs. Ruiz's enthusiasm for the subject and humorous examples kept the class engaged, and it was clear that they enjoyed her lesson.

Students were actively engaged in the lesson throughout, and when two students got off-task, Mrs. Ruiz was able to quickly bring them back to the focus of the less.

One weakness of the lesson is that Mrs. Ruiz did not pace her lesson as well as possible and many students ran out of time to finish their in-class work, making many grumbles as they left that they would have too much to do as homework.

Conclusion: In the conclusion, a final evaluation of the effectiveness of the teaching as a whole should be made, as well as any ideas for improvement. Giving "next steps to take" is a good way to end a lesson evaluation for both a personal evaluation as well as an outside one. Here is a sample:

To make her teaching more effective, Mrs. Ruiz should consider the timing of her lessons carefully. She may want to keep a closer watch on the clock and limit the amount of class discussion in order to move on to the next section of the lesson, or perhaps spread this type of three-step lesson over two days of instruction.
