Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Office of Research and Development.
As part of the Louisiana state teacher assessment program to enhance student learning, this manual provides suggestions and resources for teacher practice keyed to attributes of the "Louisiana Components of Effective Teaching." Each of these attributes is accompanied by suggested strategies, evidence of completion, and resources. The strategies are specific suggestions for gaining knowledge about and practicing teaching skills; they include varied types of activities. Suggested evidence of completion consists of observable means by which teachers and principals can document professional development activities. The resources section lists materials and persons essential for successful completion of the activity. The attributes are grouped in three sections covering performance domains for planning, management, and instruction. The planning component attribute concerns whether the teacher plans effectively for instruction. The management attributes concern maintaining an environment conducive to learing, maximizing the amount of time available for instruction, and managing learner behavior to provide productive learning opportunities. The instruction attribute concerns delivering instruction effectively, presenting appropriate content, providing chances for student involvement in learning, and assessing student progress. Appendixes contain forms, examples, and supplementary material. (JB)
