- Describe how each set of standards addresses professional collaboration and student-driven, data-informed instructional decision-making.
- According to the expectations of the profession expressed in the InTASC standards, describe how teachers are expected to assume the responsibilities of improving practice and advancing the profession.
Cite the CEC and InTASC standards in your analysis.
