1: THE FRAMEWORK FOR TEACHING:The framework for teaching described in this book identifies those aspects of a
teacher's responsibilities that have been documented through empirical studies
and theoretical research as promoting improved student learning. Although they
are not the only possible description of practice, these responsibilities seek to
define what teachers should know and be able to do in the exercise of their
profession.In this framework, the complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components clustered into the following 4 domains of teaching responsibility:
|• ||Domain 1: Planning and Preparation|
|• ||Domain 2: The Classroom Environment|
|• ||Domain 3: Instruction|
|• ||Domain 4: Professional Responsibilities|
Each component defines a distinct aspect of a domain; two to five elements
describe a specific feature of a component. For example, Domain 2, The Classroom Environment, contains five components. Component 2a is Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport, which consists of two elements: [Teacher
interaction with students" and [Student interactions with other students.] This
