Teacher Education Conceptual Model, Standards and Core Practices
Instructional Model and Core Practices
Boise State University College of Education’s conceptual framework, “The Professional Educator,” establishes our shared vision in preparing educators to work effectively in P-12 schools. It provides direction for programs, courses, teaching, candidate performance, scholarship, service, and accountability. Boise State University strives to develop knowledgeable educators who integrate complex roles and dispositions in the service of diverse communities of learners. Believing that all children, adolescents, and adults can learn, educators dedicate themselves to supporting that learning. Using effective approaches that promote high levels of student achievement, educators create environments that prepare learners to be citizens who contribute to a complex world. Educators serve learners as reflective practitioners, scholars and artists, problem solvers, and partners.
In addition, our Instructional Model takes an inquiry stance to teaching and learning through the iterative process of planning, assessment and reflection. The three parts of the Standard Performance Assessment of Teaching (S-PAT), the final performance assessment a teacher candidate completes at the end of the program, aligns with the instructional model. The S-PAT includes Part 1 Unit Plan (planning), Part 2 Assessment Analysis (assessment) and Part 3 Concluding Reflection (reflection).
