What is it like to be an excellent teacher?
Look and see! The Indiana University Inquiry Learning Forum (ILF) may help you to find out! This web site provides you with a glimpse of what quality teaching is in today’s classroom. This is a protected site; you will need to become a member in order to gain access. Once you do, however, you will be able to view excellent teachers and have access to a wealth of teaching resources. PLEASE NOTE: It is important for you to familiarize yourself with the User Guide (printable from the main page). This will help you with technical requirements and navigation of the site. It is important for classroom teachers to demonstrate the knowledge, dispositions, and skills that will ensure a quality learning experience and environment for students. To get a more specific idea as to what beginning teachers need to know and be able to do, check out the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) website, an excellent resource (http://www.ccsso.org/intasc.html).
