Four Wide Lens Observation Techniques

The mentor and mentee may want to use wide lens observation techniques for data gathering to give the mentee a larger picture of what happens in the classroom. There are many wide lens data gathering techniques including:

-Videotaping: record the lesson via a videotape machine.

-Audiotaping: record the lesson via an audiotape machine.

-Verbatim Dictation or script taping: record, in writing, the entire lesson.

-Selective Verbatim Dictation or selective script taping: record in writing critical parts of the lesson.

On the next post we will present a summary of the different observation instruments and techniques we have discussed in the blog.
