California Standards for the Teaching Profession: A Description of Professional Practice for California Teachers.
California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, Sacramento.; California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This document presents standards for professional teaching practice in California. The standards were developed to facilitate the induction of beginning teachers into their professional roles and responsibilities. The standards are organized around six interrelated categories of teaching practice: Engaging and Supporting All Students in Learning; Creating and Maintaining Effective Environments for Student Learning; Understanding and Organizing Subject Matter for Student Learning; Planning Instruction and Designing Learning Experiences for All Students; Assessing Student Learning; and Developing as a Professional Educator. Together, the six standards represent a developmental, holistic view of teaching and are intended to meet the needs of diverse teachers and students in California. Each standard is introduced in a narrative description of best practice that portrays an accomplished level of professional teaching. Following the narrative description, each standard is organized into elements that identify key areas within that domain of teaching. Each element contains questions that encourage teachers to explore aspects of teaching practice throughout their careers. The standards are presented in both a linear text version and a graphic version. (SM)
