Danielson Framework

IC uses the Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teaching to guide the professional practice of teachers.  The teacher appraisal system developed around best practices puts teacher growth at the heart of the program and ties the four domains and twenty-two components of the Danielson Framework directly to that growth.  A college-wide systematic approach to classroom walkthroughs enables teachers and administrators to work together to ensure best practices in teaching are developed and maintained.  The overview of the framework is included below.
