Spalding Teacher Self-Analysis Checklist  Print in landscape.

Research substantiates the role of reflection in teachers' professional growth. A disposition toward reflection - and a good sense of when the teacher needs to step back and think deeply - should be part of all teachers' repertoire. (Constantino & De Lorenzo, 2001; Danielson & McGreal, 2000; Glickman, 2002; Lambert, 2003)

 

This checklist is intended to help Spalding teachers self analyze their spelling, writing, and reading instruction based on The Spalding Method.

 Utilize this tool by making notes on the checklist to analyze your lesson the same day as delivering the lesson.

 Save notes and repeat process at least a few times a year to document and celebrate growth.

 Refer to appropriate Writing Road to Reading and/or Teacher's Guide references listed.
