Framework for Teaching The Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the INTASC standards, and grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. The complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components (and 76 smaller elements) clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility.
Teachscape Empowers educators to systematically improve teaching practice and to accelerate their professional growth. Our software tools, online content, and services allow educators to assess their skills and competencies, collaborate with colleagues, build their expertise, and plan their careers. With Teachscape’s observation and evaluation management, professional learning, and talent management systems, administrators can strategically manage and develop their educators, along with non-teaching personnel, resulting in more highly skilled staff, increased retention, and improved student outcomes.
Common Core The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
