Critical Components Knowledge Base Pedagogy Leadership Personal Attributes “Good teachers are able to weave a complex web of connections among themselves, their subjects, and their students, so that students can learn to weave a world for themselves. “ The Courage to Teach, Parker J. Palmer
Knowledge Base The teacher understands learning theory, subject matter, curriculum development, and student development and knows how to use this knowledge in planning instruction to meet curriculum goals. Professional teachers engage in continual reflection and research to shape new knowledge and beliefs about content and learners. Teachers are knowledgeable of the needs and experiences children bring to the classroom, including those based on culture, community, ethnicity, economics, and linguistics.
Pedagogy An effective educator promotes learning and achievement toward high developmental expectations and standards for all students. Instructional emphasis is on active learning that employs a wide range of techniques, materials, and experiences that personalize learning for all students. Effective teachers rely on extensive pedagogical knowledge to make curricular decisions, select instructional strategies, develop instructional plans, and formulate assessment to measure student learning and progress.
Leadership Leadership results in a focus on continuous improvement for higher levels of student achievement. As leaders, teachers place the highest priority on academic excellence, demonstrating a solid knowledge base of effective teaching and learning strategies and the skills necessary to design instruction for continuous improvement of instructional practice. Teacher leaders work independently and collaboratively with colleagues and others to promote program quality and advance knowledge, policy, and practice in their field
Personal Attributes The effective teacher is a reflective practitioner who continually evaluates the effects of his/her choices and action on others and who actively seeks out opportunities to grow professionally. Teachers practice equity and fairness, seeking and capitalizing on diversity and diverse perspectives. As advocates for students and their individual learning, the effective teacher demonstrates a personal vision of committed, confident learners and uses that vision to guide learning goals, expectations, and standards for student work.
