Teacher Development: Developing Your Instructional Expertise

Reflective practice is a powerful strategy for developing instructional expertise. Educators who utilize a strong model of instruction, set growth goals, focus intensely on those goals, internalize the instructional model, and adjust their goals over time are well on their way to expert teaching. Additionally, the use of a rigorous protocol when self-rating on elements of the instructional model and tracking one’s progress over time lead to great gains in terms of professional growth.
