There are many data points to look for when completing Walk-Through's, and it is easy for administrators to be overwhelmed when trying to complete an effective five-minute Walk-Through. I've put together six basic "Check-Points" to assist on assessing instruction during a Walk-Through.
"Six Walk-Through Check-Points"
ü Instructional time is maximized.
ü Students are on-task, engaged and the classroom environment is student-centered.
ü There are opportunities for all students to participate.
üThe displayed “I can” statement (Objective/Essential Question) is aligned with the instruction taking place.
ü The content of the instruction is aligned with the curriculum.
ü The teacher is enthusiastic and energetic.
