1b - Demonstrating Knowledge of Students
All learners construct knowledge from
an inner scaffolding of their individual
and social experiences, emotions, will,
aptitudes, beliefs, values, self-awareness,
purpose, and more. In other words, if
you are learning in a classroom, what
you understand is determined by how
you understand things, who you are,
and what you already know as much
as by what is covered, and how and by
whom it is delivered.
Peter Senge
In what ways
does a teacher demonstrate knowledge of
his/her students?
A teacher is aware of the learning and medical needs of their students.
A teacher knows what interests a student and is aware of their cultural background and how that will influence their learning.
Knowing Your Students
A teacher knows the age group expectations and the students' stage of development.
A teacher displays knowledge of the individual students' strengths/weaknesses and knows how to build on them .
Watch the following video and listen to the statements of the teachers involved.
Which statement(s) from the video best display an understanding of domain 1b?
1c - Setting Instructional Outcomes
Demonstrated by:
1. Descriptions of what students bring with them to the classroom.
2. Knowledge is evident in instructional plans and student interaction.
"Winners make a habit of
manufacturing their own
positive expectations in
advance of the event."

Brian Tracy
Who selects what you teach in a classroom and how do you articulate that teaching?
Setting Instructional Outcomes
Outcomes represent high expectations and rigor. They are connected and related to other disciplines.
Outcomes are presented in a clear manner in the form of student learning.
Outcomes are based on a comprehensive assessment and allow for the needs of students/groups.
Outcomes will reflect several different types of learning and opportunities for coordination and integration.
What will students learn as a result of the instruction?
Demonstrated by:
1. Outcomes related to curriculum, state frameworks, and content standards.
2. Reflection of the balance among different types of learning.

Describe a way you have differentiated outcomes for your students in an assessment.
1d - Demonstrating Knowledge of Resources
"When every physical and
mental resource is focused,
one's power to solve a
problem multiplies
tremendously. "
Norman Vincent Peale

Knowledge of resources to
enhance content and

What are some ways we can
help other teachers in our district to find/use/become knowledgeable of resources available to them?
1e - Designing Coherent Instruction
“It is tempting, if the only tool you
have is a hammer, to treat everything
as if it were a nail.”

3. Encourage depth rather than breadth.
Demonstrated by:

2. Purposeful activities, appropriate materials and student groups, and a coherent structure are displayed.
How did the teacher in the video demonstrate understanding of domain 1e?
1f - Designing students assessments
How do you create an assessment of learning and for learning?
Formative assessment is well designed and shows teacher and student assessment information.
The criteria and standards for assessment are clear. Student contribution is evident.
Assessment should be fully aligned with instructional outcomes in content and process. Evidence of adapted assessments is evident.
Designing Student Assessment
Future teacher planning uses assessment results to enrich student growth.
Demonstrated by:
