What's important?

In a couple of weeks, we will begin our Cadet Teaching classroom observations.  Typically, to observe means to look at something with an intended purpose.  In other words, what are you looking for?  When we observe, we need to have a purpose in mind.  We need to know what we are looking for.  Consider your purpose for going out into someone's classroom.  What do expect to learn or gain from doing so?

EW - Create a list of ten things to look for when observing a classroom.
