Being retired, I had zero interest in learning anything about the Danielson Framework. To me, it is just another BS system probably put together by and edu-idiot who has absolutely no idea what goes on in a classroom. But, when it took up a full page in last month's UFT paper, I gave it a look.
From what I can see, this framework is no different than anything good teachers have been doing for years. Only now, it has a fancy name and someone has gotten a lot of notoriety and money.
For this post, I will focus on Domain 1.
Domain 1: Planning and Preparation
1a Demonstrating Knowledge of Content and Pedagogy
1b Demonstrating Knowledge of Students
1c Setting Instructional Outcomes
1d Demonstrating Knowledge of Resources
1e Desingning Coherent Instruction
1f Designing Student Assessments
If teachers are expected to excel at all of the above, their supervisors should be masters at this stuff as well. After all, they are in place to make sure students are getting the best education possible. Supervisors with little to know experience and expertise in the area they are in charge of cannot do any of the above.
