promote student learning for a wide range of
student abilities.

Standard 2 Example - Disposition
Standard The teacher understands how children
with broad ranges of ability learn and provides

Dispositions The teacher demonstrates
expectations for children of all abilities to
learn by providing differing yet challenging
lessons based on individual student variation
within each area of development, and structuring
experiences that allow all students to display
their unique talents.
18
Standard 2 Example - Performances
Standard The teacher understands how children
with broad ranges of ability learn and provides
instruction that supports their intellectual,
social and personal developments.
Performances The teacher assesses individual
and group performance in order to design
instruction that meets learners current needs in
