Professional Teaching Standards

  • by

 You have been chosen to give a presentation to your department or content area teaching team. To help your department/team become more familiar with the professional standards for teaching, as well as specialized standards for content areas (e.g., special education, English, math, science), create a 12-15 slide digital presentation including the following information:

Define the InTASC standards. What are they and who do they relate to?
Define the specialized professional association (SPA) standards. What are they and who do they relate to?
Discuss the difference between the InTASC and SPA standards.
Describe how each set of standards addresses professional collaboration and data-driven instructional planning.
Explain additional themes  that are represented in each standard set and how they relate to the knowledge, skills, and values of effective teachers.
According to the expectations of the profession, as expressed within the InTASC standards, describe how teachers are expected to assume the responsibilities of improving practice and advancing the profession.

Cite both the InTASC and SPA standards and support your presentation with at least 2-4 additional scholarly sources.

Presenter’s notes are required for each content slide. Presentation must include a title slide at the beginning and a reference slide with documentation of resources at the end. The title slide and reference slide do not count in the total number of slides.
