The Curriculum Corner...Danielson's FFT: Communicating with Students (3a)

Component 3a (communicating with students) of Danielson’s FFT is much more than sharing our expectations for participation, learning and/or behavior, and consists of four main elements:

  • Expectations for learning
  • Directions & procedures
  • Explanation of content
  • Use of oral/written language

Click on the link below to visit The Curriculum Corner Online and read more about Component 3a or to review our previous posts on Danielson's FFT. Most importantly though, feel free to share some bite-sized best practices you have developed that support 3a via social media, email or in the footer of The Buzz!
