The Danielson Framework and HealthSmart

The Danielson 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. It divides the complex activity of teaching into 22 components (and 76 smaller elements) clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility.

HealthSmart can support teachers in meeting the competencies outlined in the Danielson Framework in many ways.
