Overall Comment: Overall, Mr. Thompson has done well up to this mid-semester
point. He has a strong knowledge of content and is well-prepared. I would like to see
him strengthen his ability to scaffold instruction and sustain student engagement
throughout the lessons. In addition, I think Mr. Thompson should continue to
strengthen his behavior management techniques to meet student challenges. Also, I
feel his lessons would be more successful if he spent more time attending to the
students prior knowledge and building upon what they already know rather than
assuming that they already know.
