    I was observed today and from my past experience with observations (last year), I have found it best to stick with something simple and in a format that the students are used to. For e.g., I am reading Charlie & the Choc. Factory to my grade 4's, so I read aloud and then had them doing a writing response. (with some carefully guided pre-reading and discussion questions). This basic format was successful, and it showed the principal that the students know my expectations.

    (Last year for my 3rd and final observation, I decided to be "fancy" with a science experiment. The weather that day was humid and as a result the experiment did NOT work. The whole lesson was a bust, even though I did the whole "what should have happened? what would we do different next time?" thing. Never again will I do something I'm not 100% comfortable with, that could go wrong!!)
