Science Classroom Observation Guide

Screen shot 2009-09-09 at 11.49.02 AMToday I wanted to highlight the Science Classroom Observation Guide one of MANY excellent tools from the North Cascades & Olympic Science Partnership (NCOSP) in Washington State.

You may also be interested in the Observation Form for recording observations of effective science instruction.

Word of warning: No one lesson is going to meet all of the criteria in the guide. The guide is intended to provide a set of common goals, expectations, and language as a group of educators work to improve student learning in science.

Applications for Science Teachers: This could be a useful tool for all teachers of science as we try to improve our practice. This is also a valuable tool for instructional science coaches, administrators, PD providers and teacher leaders who are working to maximize effective science instruction.

  1. Thanks, Kirk. I had forgotten about the version of the SCOG formatted for collecting evidence. I’m all over it now. 🙂
