Adult Ed Teacher Competencies
Are you familiar with our LINCS resource, "Adult Teacher Competencies"? You'll find it at https://lincs.ed.gov/publications/te/competencies.pdf. "The Adult Education Teacher Competencies are part of the evidence-based Adult Education Beginning Teacher Induction Toolkit (http://lincs.ed.gov/programs/teachereffectiveness), which is designed to promote high-quality instruction that leads to student achievement."
As I read through each section of the resource, I found lots of ground for reflection, consideration, debate, and implementation, as well as grist for the professional-development mill. What do you think?
Let's start with the Four Domains:
1. Monitors and manages student learning and performance through data
2. Plans and delivers high-quality, evidence-based instruction
3. Effectively communicates to motivate and engage learners
4. Pursues professionalism and continually builds knowledge and skills
As you consider reading and writing, or any other instruction among adults, would you add anything to those? Expand on them? Reduce them? Which is the most important in your view?
Once you have had a chance to reflect and comment on those, we'll start discussing the 17 competencies related to those domains, so keep coming back to comment more! Leecy
