    As I mentioned in Thursday’s meeting, I would keep the survey simple without adding anything besides a “Comment” box after each question if we are simply assessing disposition. However, if we are acquiring data and want the survey to be more reflective in nature, we could have an A and B for most questions (A – give at least one specific example; B – why might there NOT be evidence and/or what could be done to improve performance in that area; C – additional comments).

    Some of the prompt wording is a little awkward, but I don’t think it makes a huge difference whether we change the prompts or not. Also, some of the prompts seem to ask multiple questions. For example, in #10 are we asking about morale or passion for teaching? I think those are two separate things.

    4. “I have developed enhanced knowledge” – My knowledge has grown? I have grown in knowledge?

    5. “As a result of practicing lesson study, I have grown as a designer and instructor of curricular lessons.” – I have experienced growth in designing and implementing lessons/curriculum?

    6. “As a result of practicing instructional rounds, I have grown as a designer and instructor of curricular lessons.” – same as #5?

    9. “As a result of my membership (PARTICIPATION?) in a PLT/PLC, I have evidence that my students this year learned more effectively (DEEPLY?) than my previous students.”

    10. “As a result of my membership in a PLT/PLC, my morale and passion for teaching have increased.” – Are those 2 different questions?
