The Kentucky Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the INTASC standards, and grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching.
The complex activity of teaching is divided into multiple standards clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility:
1. Planning and Preparation
2. Classroom Environment
4. Professional Responsibilities
It is important to realize that this Framework takes into account the Kentucky Teacher Standards, the Kentucky Board of Education's Program of Studies, Common Core Academic Standards, and the Kentucky Department of Education's Characteristics of Highly Effective Teaching and Learning.
