Conceptual Framework University of Idaho educators CARE. Together we develop as scholar practitioners who value, professionally apply and advance: Cultural Proficiency; Assessment, Teaching, and Learning; Reflective Practice; and, Engaging in Community Building & Partnerships.
Cultural Proficiency In summary, cultural proficiency is the policies and practices of the organization, or the values and behaviors of an individual, which enable that agency or person to interact effectively in a culturally diverse environment. (Lindsey, Roberts & Terrell, 2003)
Reflective Practice In Summary, reflective practice involves the presence of higher-level thinking processes, such as inquiry, metacognition, analysis, integration, and synthesis. The focus of reflection usually involves an examination of personal beliefs, goals, and practices. Educators need feedback from educational leaders who can act as mentors, guides, facilitators, and coordinators for relevant meaning-making within the reflection process. (Osterman & Kottkamp, 2004)
Engaging in Community Building & Partnerships In Summary, for centuries, the education of children and youth has been the most important responsibility of society. Communities cannot rely only on schools and educators to provide quality instruction to students. It takes everyone within the community of learners; working together on educational issues, to provide a viable learning environment so all students can learn to be productive community members. As the African proverb reminds us, “It takes a village to raise a child.”
