Teacher Observer – Huntsville and Monroeville, AL

EL Education has partnered with Mathematica Policy Research, a nationally recognized social policy research company, to conduct an evaluation of the EL Education Teacher Potential Project. The project aims to assess the impact of EL Education’s Common Core-aligned English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum and professional development program on novice teachers of grades 4-8.

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the project, we will collect information from the teachers and their school districts through teacher surveys, teacher observations, student writing and student records.

We are seeking experienced ELA teachers to conduct these observations in schools in Huntsville and Monroeville, AL in the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017. The observations will occur in the teachers’ ELA classes. We will train observers to use a specific protocol, which was developed by Mathematica, to examine teachers’ instructional practices and classroom participation when conducting observations.
