With the publication of the Teacher Leadership Skills Framework, the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP) takes another step toward articulating and clarifying the specific professional development needs of teacher leaders that will positively impact learning for students in all of our schools.
This framework can be used to design professional development offerings, serve as a discussion tool to address the dilemmas that arise when leadership is shared and contribute to the ongoing dialogue about the roles teacher leaders assume in efforts to improve student learning.
Three companion tools are available. Teacher leaders can use the Teacher Leader Self Assessment to assess their current knowledge and skills and plan for their future development as leaders. School principals and other school and district leaders can use the School and District Capacity Tool to determine systems-level readiness to utilize the expertise of teacher leaders and support their work and development as leaders. Both teacher leaders and systems leaders can use the Mathematics: Knowledge of Content and Pedagogy tool which articulates the specific knowledge and skills teachers need to lead initiatives in mathematics.
