Displaying Standards in the Classroom
The TEAM evaluation process requires teachers to post teaching standards, as well as essential questions, lesson goals, and vocabulary. I found that for observations, this type of display board is essential.
This was created using a display board like the ones used for science fairs. I purchased ordinary curtain hooks from Wal-Mart. To create hangers, punch the curtain hooks through the board keeping the sharp pointed end between the layers of the corrugated cardboard of the display board. Page protectors easily slide onto the curtain hooks. Inside the page protectors, lesson essentials may be displayed such as standards and lesson goals. Notice the right side of the board has a vocabulary pocket chart.
The display board pictured is set up to use with a lesson for the book The Dark is Rising. When you purchase my The Dark is Rising Book Unit from Teachers Pay Teachers, you will receive a link and password information to a password protected portion of my website. Here you will be able to download the Common Core reading and language standards, essential questions, lesson goals, lesson vocabulary, and novel vocabulary to aid in lesson displays for each chapter/lesson for The Dark is Rising.
