DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET 6 INTRODUCTION Also included throughout the book are checklists, self-assessments, and re- producible forms designed to aid your planning. As you experiment with these tools, feel free to modify them for your own use; you know your situation best. Reproducible versions of these forms can be found in the appendix. At the end of each chapter, you will find reflection questions to help you think critically about evaluating and supporting teachers. Reflect on your own or discuss these questions with your staff or professional learning community. This book focuses on the pressing issue of evaluation and support of teachers, and it provides solutions. Evaluation means nothing if a system of support is not in place to promote growth and improvement. Evaluation without support is like testing children without making plans to teach them the skills they need to be successful. I know together we can improve teacher evaluation and sup- port. Use principles and strategies I describe in this book to get started on this important work. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
