Charlotte Danielson or National Board Certification: A Comparison and Contrasting of Two Major National Frameworks for Teaching
Viviano, Thomas
Journal of Career and Technical Education, v27 n2 p114-119 Win 2012
Two well-known major frameworks to measure teacher performance and determine what a teacher should know and be able to do are undoubtedly the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and Charlotte Danielson's Framework for teaching. Charlotte Danielson has four major domains and National Board Certification (NBPTS) has five major core propositions. Although they differ in wording, there are many similarities. As of this writing the Pennsylvania Department of Education is in the process of adopting Danielson's Framework domains and is in the process of piloting a rubric for the four domains that will be used as its teacher evaluation/assessment system. This paper explores the differences and similarities of NBPTS and Danielson's Frameworks but doesn't advocate for either. It also explores whether an NBPTS teacher would fare well on Danielson's framework rubric given their similarities. (Contains 1 figure.)
