Chapter 2: The Skillful Teacher Framework

Chapter 2: The Skillful Teacher Framework
The Skillful Teacher Framework is different from other frameworks. First, it is based on a theory of knowledge grounded in sound epistemology (Polanyi, 1966). Second, it is practical and specific. It uses numerous classroom examples and plain language, without jargon, to spell out the de-tails of what a skill looks like and sounds like. Third, it is written to assist in classroom problem-solving and asserts that successful teaching is inherently problem-solving and decision-making from repertoires. Fourth, it supports building strong “Adult Professional Culture” based on constant learning and non-defensive examination of practice in relation to student learning. Finally, it is inclusive. Teaching skill is defined to include anything a person does that influences the probability of intended learning.
