  • COMMUNICATION: Articulates expectations and learning goals for students.
  • PLANNING: Focuses instructional decisions and targets critical information for instructional tasks.
  • COLLABORATION: Promotes professionalism and fosters dialogue between colleagues about best practices pertaining to sequencing, unit emphasis, length, integration, and review strategies.
