Analyzing the Rubric

As our world becomes increasingly more interconnected, it is important for our students to engage with other nations and cultures, embrace diversity, and use technology to learn and think critically. This activity will provide an opportunity to develop a depth of understanding around elements 2b, 3c, 3d, and 4d of the Rubric for Evaluating North Carolina Teachers.

Activity: Using the North Carolina Teacher Evaluation Process Manual critically analyze the language in each of the following elements: 2b, 3c, 3d, and 4d. Highlight and annotate the critical terms of reference in each of these elements. As you annotate the text, consider the descriptors aligned with each of the ratings within each of these elements and identify teacher/student behaviors that result in obtaining each performance rating. Discuss your findings with a partner.

Element IIb: Teachers embrace diversity in the school community and in the world. Teachers demonstrate their knowledge of the history of diverse cultures and their role in shaping global issues. They actively select materials and develop lessons that counteract stereotypes and incorporate histories and contributions of all cultures. Teachers recognize the influence of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and other aspects of culture on a student’s development and personality. Teachers strive to understand how a student’s culture and background may influence his or her school performance. Teachers consider and incorporate different points of view in their instruction.

Element IIIc: Teachers recognize the interconnectedness of content areas/disciplines. Teachers know the links and vertical alignment of the grade or subject they teach and the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Teachers understand how the content they teach relates to other disciplines in order to deepen understanding and connect learning for students. Teachers promote global awareness and its relevance to subjects they teach.

Element IIId: Teachers make instruction relevant to students. Teachers incorporate 21st century life skills into their teaching deliberately, strategically, and broadly. These skills include leadership, ethics, accountability, adaptability, personal productivity, personal responsibility, people skills, self- direction, and social responsibility. Teachers help their students understand the relationship between the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and 21st century content, which includes global awareness; financial, economic, business and entrepreneurial literacy; civic literacy and health awareness.

Element IVd: Teachers integrate and utilize technology in their instruction. Teachers know when and how to use technology to maximize student learning. Teachers help students use technology to learn content, think critically, discern reliability, use information, communicate, innovate, and collaborate.
