Don’t miss OMEA’s two-pronged professional development training focused on Ohio’s Resident Educator Program and the teacher evaluation component of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System. Sign up for either session or stay for the whole day! Training will be June 22, 2015 at Bexley High School, Columbus.
During the morning session, (9:00-11:30), Eric Ratica, Band Director and Resident Educator Program Coordinator for Norwayne Local Schools, will address ways to overcome some of the challenges that music teachers face with the Resident Educator Program. An overview of the entire 4-year resident educator program will be discussed with emphasis on making the program applicable to music teachers. Special emphasis will be placed on Years 3 and 4 (The RESA and “learn to lead” modules).
The afternoon session, (1:00-3:30), will focus on the Teacher Evaluation side of OTES from an administrator's perspective. Middle school principal and former band director, Jonathan Muro, will present a session entitled, "How To Make The OTES Rubric Work For Music Teachers." This presentation will engage attendees in a collaborative work session to create examples of music class instruction that correlate with the OTES teaching performance rubric. The goal is to connect rubric expectations with those activities that occur in music class to help evaluators understand what to look for when observing a music class. Talking points will include looking through the lens of an evaluator; how to connect the relevancy of good music instruction to the OTES rubric; and communicating these efforts to the evaluator.
Attendees may chose to attend the morning session, the afternoon session or the entire day. Contact hour certificates will be available based on your attendance selection.
Registration deadline is June 15th.
