The Accomplished Teaching Body of Knowledge (BoK: Five Core Propositions, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, and the National Board Standards) provides educators an opportunity to engage in a shared learning of the foundational principles of excellent teaching, while using the frame of the Accomplished Teaching BoK to assess and reflect upon their instructional practice to further develop and improve teaching and learning and impact student growth and achievement. Each seminar session will engage educators in an alignment of each of the core propositions with the instructional practice standards and indicators of the Nevada Educator Performance Framework (NEPF).
