Collaborative Framework for Educator Evaluation (CoFFEE)

April 12 – June 14, 2021

CoFFEE is designed for new administrators/department heads who are, or will be, responsible for supervision, observation, and/or evaluation. Unlike other evaluation training programs, CoFFEE is designed specifically for Massachusetts and anchored in the Massachusetts model for educator evaluation and looks at teaching and learning with a lens of cultural proficiency.

During the course, candidates deepen their understanding of the MA framework for educator evaluation and develop a common language to define effective instruction. Through the use of practice exercises, videos, case studies, reading, discussion, and coaching sessions, participants will develop instructional leadership skills to…

  • Name, explain, and document effective instruction regardless of the means of delivery (e.g., in-person, solely online, and/or blended);
  • Communicate effectively about pedagogical practices that impact student learning to provide teachers with detailed feedback in order to promote a continued cycle of professional growth;
  • Develop and reinforce professional practice that engages instructional leaders and their colleagues in meaningful, student-focused conversations about best practice and maintains an open feedback loop;
  • Utilize a wide range of data points about student learning in teacher goal setting and benchmarking to indicate measures of growth and success.

CoFFEE participants will be required to submit one video recording of a teacher’s lesson that accompanies the participant’s feedback.
