In this video, you will see Kelly Crenshaw’s Teaching Team, in a weekly team meeting. Charlotte Danielson focuses on professionalism in this way, “Expert teachers demonstrate professionalism in service both to students and to the profession…as [teachers] gain experience and expertise, educators find ways to contribute to their colleagues and to the profession.” (Framework Cluster 6: Professionalism 4d/4e/4f).
Together these educators co-plan by collaboratively determining key materials and resources that will support individual student IEP goals. The team also discuss individual needs that include family linkages. These learning priorities are documented and used by all members of the team to support the collective learning of the class. (Framework Cluster 6: The teacher takes a leadership role in team decision-making, and enjoys the trust of colleagues in terms of honesty, commitment and integrity; Distinguished).
