Danielson Framework Alignment to The Foundation Trinity

No Comments

Recently, I shared the alignment of Lead Your School (LYS) processes and practices to the new Texas teacher evaluation standards.  Since then, LYSers in states that have adopted/adapted the Danielson Framework as the basis for teacher evaluation have asked if I would do a similar alignment for their use. 

OK.  But before I do, I just want to again remind all educators of the following:

BEST PRACTICE IS BEST PRACTICE!

For the teacher who infrequently implements known best instructional practice, he needs to get on the ball, because it is the right thing to do.  For the teacher working to increase the quantity and quality of known best instructional practice in her classroom, she is doing exactly what is expected and is on the right track with any evaluation system. 

From a leadership standpoint, the campus that is working to better implement The Foundation Trinity has positioned its teachers to be ahead of the curve in meeting and exceeding Danielson Framework standards.  As proof, and to alleviate the stress being felt by some educators, I share the following abridged Danielson Framework / Foundation Trinity Alignment Summary.

Domain 1: Planning and Preparation Knowledge of: content and structure; pedagogy; learning process; student skills; student need; content value, sequence and alignment; instructional resources; learning activities; instructional grouping; aligned formative assessment design and use.
