The Case for a Student-Facing Rubric
What should an instructional coach be looking at when she observes a lesson? If she's got a rubric detailing ideal teacher moves, she's probably focusing most of her attention on the teacher. And we think that's wrong. Well, half wrong.
If the coach is working from a rubric that describes what *students* are doing in an ideal lesson, she's more focused on the bottom line: whether kids are learning. If they're not, such a "student-facing" rubric will help her determine what the biggest roadblock to student learning is, and what instructional moves could be implemented to address it.
