One of your observations may be unannounced, without arranging it ahead of time with the teacher candidate. You must prearrange the unannounced visit with the host teacher. Evaluate the unannounced visit on the regular observation form just as you do for the other observations. Please ensure the optional unannounced observation occurs after the midterm. If you feel an unannounced visit may cause the candidate extreme anxiety, please talk with the host teacher to determine what is best for the teacher candidate. Likewise, if you and the host teacher feel the candidate might benefit from more unannounced visits or extra observations, contact the Teacher Success team first.
