Administrator Guides - World Languages

The World Languages Collaborative Team has crafted the new Administrator Guides, or updated “Look-For” documents for principals that are a K-12 Teacher Evaluation Support Tool for the North Carolina Educator Evaluation System (NCEES) Standards 1-5.

Each Administrator Guide is a 4-page packet, or two pages when copied back-to-back, and starts with an overview of a World Language program (Classical Languages, Dual & Heritage Languages, Modern Languages), plus information about the structure and goals of the World Language Essential Standards as they apply to that program. Attached is a compilation of model practices, organized and aligned according to NCEES Standards I-V. The practices also incorporate the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning (TELL) materials that have been developed nationally for use by district language coordinators, department heads, mentor teachers, etc. By incorporating TELL with NCEES, the goal is to create a tool for principals to use in their work with teachers which integrates best practices in World Language instruction. The Administrator Guides do not take the place of the NCEES evaluation tool, but are designed to be used as a resource to support the evaluation tool and to deepen understanding about meaningful instruction in world language classrooms.

Discussions are underway about the professional development that will accompany this tool.
