In this session participants will examine and discuss the Teacher Leader Model Standards. Digging into the standards they will describe key actions and practices for each of the seven domains. Participants will be asked to reflect on their role as a teacher leader and select one of the domains to focus on as they begin or continue their work as a teacher leader.
In May 2008 a group of educators examined current research and the critical role that teacher leaders play in education. Upon reviewing this data, they believe that teacher leadership is the most powerful method to promote effective and collaborative teaching practices leading to student success. The Teaching Leadership Exploratory Consortium developed the Teacher Leader Model Standards. This set of seven domains describes the knowledge base and skills needed by a teacher leader to assume a leadership role in all aspects of education.
Teacher leaders are the superheroes of education. They have a measurable, positive effect on students, school districts and other teaching professionals. What standards do these superheroes live by? In this session participants will look at and evaluate the National Teacher Leader Model Standards. Consisting of seven domains these standards will stimulate dialogue among educators regarding teacher leadership and their role as a teacher leader. Participants will walk away with a set of standards useful to teachers as they begin or further their explorations into affective teacher leadership.
