BOOKS BY MARZANO**Teacher evaluation model takes the focus from compliance to long-term improvement** The future of teacher evaluation lies in more than collecting static pictures of how well teachers perform in any given moment. A robust teacher evaluation model helps teachers improve their instruction over time, leading students to ever-higher achievement.
The Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model fulfills that mission: providing clear strategies and measurable goals to help teachers, year by year, grow into the best educators they are capable of being. The model incorporates research-based strategies that create causal links to raising student achievement when teachers use the strategies with fidelity.
Developed over five decades of research, the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model allows districts or individual schools to select two or three strategies to focus on each year. Professional development is aligned to support teachers as they learn to use the strategies. With iObservation, the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model offers school administrators clear, easy-to-use scoring rubrics to provide immediate, paperless, targeted feedback on teachers' use of classroom strategies.

BOOKS BY DANIELSON The Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the INTASC standards, and grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. The complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components (and 76 smaller elements) clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility. Each component defines a distinct aspect of a domain; two to five elements describe a specific feature of a component. Levels of teaching performance (rubrics) describe each component and provide a roadmap for improvement of teaching. The Framework may be used for many purposes, but its full value is realized as the foundation for professional conversations among practitioners as they seek to enhance their skill in the complex task of teaching. The Framework may be used as the foundation of a school or district’s mentoring, coaching, professional development, and teacher evaluation processes, thus linking all those activities together and helping teachers become more thoughtful practitioners.
