  • As you read her article, what can you add to her suggestions as to how school executives can be better prepared to evaluate their teachers?

  • If so, in what way? If not, what would you recommend?

Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
