Erica Pifer and Angela Brewer


K-12 teachers and administrators

  1. Explain the purposes and functions of the knowledge base of teaching.
  2. Explain the concepts of “areas of performance,” “repertoire,” and “matching” and how these three concepts define professional knowledge.
  3. Expand/refresh your repertoire of teaching strategies.
  4. Recognize that the larger the repertoire the more precise the match.
  5. Continue to develop cultural proficiency in the context of our schools and classrooms.


This session will include a survey of the 18 areas of performance that a teacher must attend to in everyday instruction within four categories: curriculum and lesson planning, motivating students, delivering instruction, and managing a classroom. Participants will develop an understanding and be able to apply the three key concepts of area of performance, repertoire, and matching.


Participants must attend both sessions to meet the prerequisite requirement for attending other modules.


Virtual Zoom link will be sent to registrants two days before the first meeting date.
