The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.
INTASC Standard #7 Interpretation:
To meet this standard I will need to make use my planning organization skills to develop lessons that not only meet state core curriculum standards but that engage learners, and meet educational goals.
Reflection on the Standard:
The following artifact demonstrates my understanding of INTASC standard #7 planning for instruction. When planning for instruction it is important to know as much about your students and the stages of development. This is especially so when designing a lesson plan, that is why I chose to include the writings of Dr. Larry A. Kantner, of the University of Missouri-Columbia . I was introduced to his work by my Advisor, also the head of the art education department at my University. I have made his work a great reference when developing grade specific lesson plans because they provide me with a better understanding of graphic development; from the scribbling stage to dawning of realism stage.
