The Sanibel Leadership Conference materialshighlight the achievements of Project STELLAR in year two of the grant – among these are the educators’ ongoing professional development, implementation of an ELL- modified Danielson rubric for teacher assessment, family engagement programs and website creation.
We have adapted the Danielson teacher evaluation protocol for teachers of EL students. Based on the adapted protocol, which modified the observation protocol for two of the four domains, we conducted studies of the validity and reliability of the protocol. The protocol had strong evidence of content validity and strong evidence of reliability using inter-rater reliability and internal consistency for the domains. We believe the modified protocol shows promise as a formative guide for teachers of ELs.
