•Include pictures, student work, or flyers from the school to make it authentic
• Include the documented hours on a time sheet that you create indicating
the dates, times, specific class and video that you observed.

b. Curriculum; activities observed—What are some things that students are learning? (not only for one day) What subjects do the students have in the room? What subjects do the students have outside of the room?
c. Adult-child interactions—How do the children respond to the teacher? How does the teacher respond to all of the different learners in the classroom? Do any children stand out to you? What behaviors do you notice? Does the teacher notice certain students more than others?
d. Parent or community involvement in the classroom—Did any parents visit the classroom during your observation period? Is there another teacher in the room? How do the children respond to you?
