Play, transitions, and disruptions rubric

Play, Transitions, and Disruptions Rubric

This week we have learned about incorporating play into the classroom and planning for disruptions and transitions in the classroom. These ideas are connected to the second pillar of becoming the Whole Teacher, incorporating developmentally appropriate practice. How will you know if the teachers you work with are able to effectively implement developmentally appropriate strategies in the classroom for play, transitions, and disruptions? One way to know for sure is to utilize a rubric as a tool for evaluating teachers and providing constructive feedback. Rubrics provide clarity regarding what is expected and therefore are commonly used tools for providing feedback in education.
