The Danielson Collection

Enhance Professional Practice to Raise Student Achievement

The Danielson Collection incorporates the four domains of the Framework for Teaching into a streamlined and efficient way to implement, monitor and support teacher growth and development to raise student achievement. Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching is respectful of teacher diversity and the complexity of the teaching-learning process. The Framework establishes standards for teaching while remaining compatible with various styles of instruction. The Danielson Collection provides the tools and resources to move from theory to systematic implementation in order to measurably enhance teaching practices. iObservation is the only system to include the official Danielson Framework for Teaching observation and data collection forms and tools.
