Standard #7:  Planning for Instruction.  The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.

7(a) The teacher individually and collaboratively selects and creates learning experiences that are appropriate for curriculum goals and content standards, and are relevant to learners.  (Performances)
7(k) The teacher knows a range of evidence-based instructional strategies, resources, and technological tools and how to use them effectively to plan instruction that meets diverse learning needs.  (Essential Knowledge)
7(p) The teacher takes professional responsibility to use short- and long-term planning as a means of assuring student learning.  (Critical Dispositions)

In my words: As a teacher, I will plan for instruction that adapts to and accommodates fore very student. I will plan instruction that meets goals, connects content areas and skills from other subjects, and provides knowledge both in and out of the classroom.
