    • Learning Differences - The teacher candidate creates inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.
    • Learning Environments - The teacher candidate works with others to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning and that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
    • Content Knowledge - The teacher candidate understands the discipline(s) he or she teaches and creates learning experiences that make these aspects of the discipline accessible and meaningful for learners to assure mastery of the content.
    • Application of Content - The teacher candidate uses differing perspectives to engage learners in critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative problem solving related to authentic local and global issues.
    • Assessment - The teacher candidate uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress, and to guide the teacher’s and learner’s decision making.
    • Planning for Instruction - The teacher candidate plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals.
