Teaching for College and Career Readiness
Teacher Reflection Surveys - BETTER Learning Model
Developing students into successful college and career ready graduates depends on how teachers teach. The important life ready traits such as good work habits, independence, resilience and creativity result from related instructional practices. The BETTER Learning Model identifies six instructional elements that are essential to college and career readiness. To learn more about the BETTER Learning Model watch this video presentation. [Note: When in development, this model was called the CAREER Instructional Model.]
Effective teachers continue to improve their practice by reflecting on what works and what can be improved in their teaching. Six teacher reflection surveys are available for you to reflect on your instructional practices. All surveys are online and take less than 5 minutes to complete. These are meant as personal assessment tool and after responding to a series of characteristics and the degree to which they are in you practice, you receive a personalized report that summarizes your favorable practices and offers suggestions on how to improve other practices.
