This document cross-references the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) and Instruction for All Students by Paula Rutherford. It provides school administrators, professional developers, BTSA support providers, mentors, and teachers easy access to an array of research-based best practices aligned with the standards.
To use this tool, identify the focus standard and key element(s) to be addressed. Locate that standard and key element in the document. Beside it you will find page references to the pages in Instruction for All Students that provide guidance and direction for work on that component of professional practice.
This tool helps school administrators, professional developers, mentors and teachers:
- Develop professional growth plans
- Identify areas of focus for individual or group study
- Provide suggestions following walk-throughs or formal observations
- Build background knowledge and skillfulness
- Make cognitive connections between the text and the CSTP
This book, recently updated to provide information about implementing the Common Core and make explicit connections between the research-based strategies in the book with the requirements of the Common Core, provides strategies and resources for actively engaging students and multiple approaches to lesson and unit design. It also includes information on technology integration, formative assessment, 21st century thinking skills that promote rigor and relevance, and formats for job-embedded learning.
