Classroom Walk Throughs

Now that I am an Instructional Specialist, my focus on classrooms has taken on another meaning.  As a part of my position, I am responsible for conducting Classroom Walk Through's each week.  They are snapshots of what we currently see happening in classrooms during a five to ten minute time frame.  Last year our district conducted CWT's through PD360.  However this year we no longer had the option to use PD360 for CWT's.  I began searching the internet for something to use other than the paper and pencil version, as that seemed like a step backwards.  I found this great tutorial for creating a CWT using Google Docs (now Drive) that you can find {here}.  

Here is what I came up with.  You start off by making a spreadsheet in Google Drive.  From there you can go to the live form and input each CWT you conduct.  The spread sheet tracks the information collected.  Each week our admin. team discusses the data.  I copy and paste each teacher's information into a table in Word and distribute.  We then pass on the data to the entire staff in our Weekly Item Sheet.  If you are interested, you can click on the picture and see a sample spreadsheet.

P.S.  I also wanted to do a Shout out to Brenda from Just Ask!  She celebrated her birthday on Saturday.  Happy Birthday!!  I hope is was a great day!!!
