The best advice I give to teachers and administrators as to what to do for T-TESS is this…

Work to get better at implementing better and best practice and T-TESS will solve itself. Don’t work to better implement better and best practice, and it doesn’t matter what evaluation tool is used, you are living on borrowed time. 

So working to get better at implementing better and best practice sounds good, but what does that look like? In the next three post, I will provide visuals that illustrate the alignment of best practice to T-TESS. First up, how the individual components of The Foundation Trinity align to the individual components of T-TESS.
