First, this is a site for teachers, not for use in the classroom by students. I read and took notes on the information for my own use in developing professional goals as a teacher.
I was misled by the grammatical error in the title on the MERLOT list to believe this site would be an amateurish, possibly reductive list of educational standards. Instead, I found a highly literate, professional, and well-thought-out examination of what makes a good teacher, and a proposal for a national board certification of good teachers. Teacher evaluation in the profession is such a confusing, subjective process: I had hoped to find a checklist to replace the ubiquitous (and notoriously inaccurate) student evaluation scores for ascertaining how good a teacher is. I didn't find that; but the detailed discussions of various attributes of good teachers can certainly provide goals and personal objectives for teachers in their quest to improve. While National Board Certification of good teachers is a worthy, commendable concept, methods of rating teachers along the specified lines are not laid out on this site. Teacher/readers are therefore, albeit inspired, still left with the same old question: how can we rank or reward good teaching?
There are many links to professional websites for further information on how to improve teaching.
