The teaching staff at Milford Public Schools has spent more than a decade fully immersed in the Marzano Instructional Framework to promote effective instruction in the classroom. In 2017, the district began to use the framework for the foundation for teacher evaluation. Guess what? Providing specific feedback for all 43 elements proved to be too cumbersome. It was also difficult to effectively train new teachers on so many topics. We needed to simplify and embrace the concept of “less is more” in order to provide more clarity for instruction and growth. Since 2017 the MPS administrative team has worked to reduce the number of elements used in the teacher evaluation process from 43 to 8. We will share how we determined the 8 elements from the Marzano Instructional model, and how these 8 elements promote teacher growth and how they are used as part of a new teacher induction program.
