Teacher Effectiveness

Home / Instruction / Teacher Effectiveness
Pennsylvania has adopted Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching as the overarching vision for effective instruction in the Commonwealth. The model focuses the complex activity of teaching by defining four domains of teaching responsibility:
Domains 1 and 4 cover aspects of the teaching profession that occur outside the classroom, while Domains 2 and 3 address aspects that are directly observable in classroom teaching.
(Danielson, 2011)

Teaching Professionals with Unique Roles and Functions serve in many different capacities across the Commonwealth given their varied roles, function and contexts. As shown, committees of educators worked to develop general and specific examples as an optional and potentially useful supplement to the existing and already validated Danielson Rubric for use with instructionally certified personnel.

Please note that these are examples only and are not meant to represent the full range of training, experience or unique roles and functions that a given educator may provide. Discussion of examples may help the evaluator and person being evaluated facilitate meaningful conversation and were not developed to be used as evidence or lack thereof within practice and the evaluation process.
