Salt Lake City (PRWEB) July 25, 2013 -- School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a video showing how to implement the new teaching standards outlined by the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC). The teaching standards are part of “InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards” on the LumiBook platform, School Improvement Network’s interactive e-reading platform.
“Quality teaching standards are essential to helping educators become as effective as possible and adequately preparing all students for college and career,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “By articulating what effective teaching looks like, these new teaching standards will help educators understand the steps necessary to master effective teaching.”
As part of the LumiBook platform, these teaching standards create a dialogue among educators about what constitutes effective classroom teaching. The videos embedded in the LumiBook illustrate examples of effective teaching as defined by the teaching standards, and include commentary from education authorities on the pedagogy behind the teaching standards.
