This past week, I attended and presented some research at the Illinois Music Educators Conference. I found out that most educators are worried about evaluation reform because every session that had the word: Evaluation, Danielson, Data Teams, or Student Growth in the title was crammed with people. So much so, that I could not even attend one of them. In the future I hope to connect the effects of mindfulness and awareness techniques to address the evaluation tool most schools are or will be using http://www.danielsongroup.org (the framework: http://www.danielsongroup.org/article.aspx?page=frameworkforteaching) and meeting the terms of the PERA (Performance Evaluation Reform Act) law (http://www.isbe.state.il.us/PERA/default.htm) regarding indicators/proof of student growth as determined by the state and school district. Thus, my direction is set.
