How can we make teacher observations less intimidating and more meaningful? In this season’s first episode of “On the Record with Michael Mulgrew,” UFT President Michael Mulgrew talks with three New York City public school educators about ways teachers can take more control over their observations. The UFT recently negotiated needed changes to the teacher evaluation process, including reducing the minimum number of observations for most teachers to two a year. But real change, Mulgrew and his guests say, will only come when we change the culture around observations – when we see observations as an opportunity to have a conversation about educational practices between two professionals.
