I did an observation at a local private middle school in an English course.The teacher was phenomenal! She gave this out the first day of class. It goes over class procedures and expected behaviors. Not only that, but it also teaches a grammar lesson! It also asks for a writing sample for the teacher to get a feel of where her students are.
