Model Core Teaching Standards and Learning Progressions for Teachers 1.0
The Council of Chief State School Officers, through its Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC), offers a set of combined resources that defines and supports ongoing teacher effectiveness to ensure students reach college- and career-ready standards.
This publication includes InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards: A Resource for State Dialogue, which was released in April 2011, and the new InTASC Learning Progressions for Teachers 1.0: A Resource for Ongoing Teacher Development (2013). Together, they describe the new vision of teaching needed for today’s learners; how teaching practice that is aligned to the new vision develops over time; and what strategies teachers can employ to improve their practice, both individually and collectively.
This publication is organized as follows: First is an introduction and summary of the model core teaching standards, which describe what the standards are and what they hope to achieve. Second is an introduction to the learning progressions for teachers, which describes the increasing complexity and sophistication of teaching practice across a continuum of development. Third are the standards and progressions themselves, with each standard followed by its corresponding learning progression. Lastly, the document includes a glossary, a chart of crosscutting themes in the standards, and names of committee members who drafted the standards and progressions.
