    is an effective way to identify highly skilled
    teachers, says a new congressionally mandated

    taught by teachers who are not board-certified,
    says the report.

Standard Analysis
  • In groups of 2 or 3 read the Knowledge of
    Students standard. It is generally the first
    standard for each certificate area.
  • Identify areas in your own teaching where you
    meet parts of the standards.
  • Start creating a list of things you do that
    meet the standards.
