- Please continue to get familiar with your students. I would imagine knowing your students in periods 4-8 are more important since you will likely be observed during these periods. You may wish to know how many students have an IEP, how many are ESL and how many have free/reduced lunch. Knowing their 8th grade standardized exam scores in math and English is important. If you are teaching trigonometry, knowing their MXRE scores will be more important than the 8th grade scores.
Ah yes, its dog and pony showtime!!! Screw the kids in the classes that won't be visited. Appearances are all that count.
