School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced free access to the “InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards” LumiBook for effective teaching, developed by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) on the LumiBook platform. The LumiBook illustrates the updated InTASC standards for educators, including new teaching standards and learning progressions to build a common skill set and knowledge base among educators to increase effective teaching and student learning.
“Effective teaching is the key to helping 100 percent of students become college and career ready, and improving the nation’s economy and restoring global competitiveness,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “The new InTASC teaching standards show educators what effective teaching looks like through our vast video library and outline specific skills and learning progressions to standardize effective teaching among all educators in schools and classrooms across the country.”
The new InTASC LumiBook gives educators the following guides for effective teaching:
- An in-depth view of the new InTASC standards
- Do-it-yourself tools to help educators guide themselves through the standards towards more effective teaching
- Ways to create professional development activities aligned to the InTASC standards
- Video instruction with footage of the standards in action
