Louisiana Components of Effective Teaching

Domain I: Planning

Planning is an important aspect of the teaching/learning process and is primarily a mental activity. As a result, a pre-conference is essential to discuss plans and the learning environment. Assessment should be made following the pre-conference. The focus of the pre-conference is to be on the attributes in the planning domain and any additional teacher-supplied information.

understand that variations in the lesson may occur during delivery and that the teacher makes adjustments as necessary to accommodate the needs and responses of students. The post-conference should provide an opportunity for the teacher to present his/her rationale for any modifications during the lesson.

The observer must take into account the individual plans of Act 504, special education regulations, and any other identifiable groups. Alternate methods of assessment musy be developed for other professionals holding teaching certificates (i.e., librarians, counselors, speech therapists, and assessment teachers).

The professional development plan may include a variety of ways in which teachers can engage in growth activities. The successful teacher shall not be mandated to participate in any one specific growth activity.

During the post-observation conference, the principal/designee and the teacher will set a date to discuss the proposed professional self-development plan for the teacher.
