Observation Form Procedures

Please use the Social Studies Education Formative Observation form to evaluate the student teacher. It is a fillable five page pdf form which requires a pdf reader. Click icon at right for free and secure Adobe Reader download.

You are required to give a score for every subdomain.
You are not required to write a comment in every box but these comments help the student teacher improve.
Please complete the form within 48 hours of the formal observation.

Save the document as a pdf using the student's last name and the date of the observation in the following format: StudentLastName_MMDDYY (e.g. Kim_022412).

If you can write on the form but cannot save it, you most likely do not have the correct version of Adobe Reader.  Make sure to download the version on this page (icon on right).

E-mail the document to the Social Studies Education Program Coordinator (hkim@udel.edu).

Attach the lesson plan, unit plan, and any lesson materials to the Observation Documents Coversheet.

You may:

  • drop this off at the Social Studies Education office at 214 John Munroe Hall, or
  • mail it to the Social Studies Education Office at University of Delaware, 214 John Munroe Hall, Newark, DE 19716, or
  • give it to the student teacher to hand in.
