Tool: Mentor observation to support adjusting instruction

Teachers consistently use on-going assessment to adjust their planning and instruction. These judgments are made both on the spot and as a result of reflection after each lesson. Making immediate decisions and adjustments can be challenging for beginning teachers; that requires practice and awareness. This tool is intended to help mentors identify potential adjustments that might have been made during a lesson.
