Practices and behaviors which demonstrate necessary teaching competencies, effective classroom
management, positive personal qualities, and other instructional matters.
To ensure that all students have equal instructional opportunities and to create a classroom
environment in which teaching and learning are challenging, dynamic, and comprehensive.
Teaching of the essential curriculum of each teacher’s discipline is grounded in the understanding
that the aim of education is personal growth, the development of individual talents, abilities, and
values; the acquisition of knowledge; and the pursuit of understanding.
ELL teachers also need a strong theoretical and practical foundation in applied linguistics, language
acquisition, ELL methods, and cross-cultural training
