Pineapple Charts

A Pineapple Chart lets teachers invite colleagues into their classrooms
for informal observation.

Posted Pineapple Charts let your colleagues know what you are teaching and gives you the opportunity to observe their lesson.

The pineapple is recognized as a symbol of "welcome" and hospitality.

Teacher Notes

When I first started teaching my first principal wisely had me observe a veteran teacher who became a lifelong friend.  I learned so much watching him teach. 

My Teacher Mentor - Patrick J. Corr

During the course of my 20 years as a classroom teacher and 12 years as a teacher-librarian I was observed by many of my colleagues.  One principal brought anyone visiting our school into my classroom.

I was also a part of a college program that had college juniors observe me teach once a week.
