I judge my ability to teach by how well my students learn rather than how well I teach content.






I am comfortable with others judging my ability to teach by how well my students learn.






If I leave school knowing many of my students did not learn as I expected, I determine that I did not teach very well that day.






I take full responsibility when my students fail to learn.






I do not blame students or their parents for my students failing to learn.






I do not move to another concept until my students have mastered the one at hand.






Each day I clearly communicate what is expected of my students.






My students clearly see how one day of learning builds on the next day of learning.






I give my students ample time to practice learning tasks before I make a judgment about how well they learned.






I do not assign a daily grade to my students’ work when they are practicing learning tasks.






I create opportunities where my students receive continuous and specific feedback that helps them improve.






I consistently recognize my students’ strengths.
