I Can Statements for Teachers

The following is a list of I can statements for teachers, based on the Framework for Teachers (FfT) by Charolette Danielson. It is my intention to take the time on to unpack the framework by: explaining the levels of mastery, identifying key concepts and skills, determining big ideas, and writing the essential questions. This attempt is so that myself and others may benefit fully from the FfT so that we may better our practice as teachers.
