700.1PBP PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATIONS AND ETHICAL BEHAVIOR PROJECT
This project is designed to evaluate your knowledge of The Teacher. You will apply your knowledge of the role and expectations of the professional educator to the characteristics and ethical behaviors learned in the coursework. This project is aligned with Standard 6D of the Texas Approved Educator Standards, and the Texas Administrative Code 19 TAC §228.35(b)(2).
This project has three tasks, each representing a different facet of the role of the professional educator. Task 1 evaluates your ability to recognize and respond to violations of the Texas Educator Code of Ethics. Task 2 evaluates your ability to communicate professionally and appropriately with parents. Task 3 evaluates your ability to respond appropriately to your colleagues. Your paper will be evaluated on multiple criteria, including your thorough response to each of the prompts, including your ability to write professionally. To successfully complete this project and avoid resubmission, you must review the rubric with which you are evaluated.
You will submit your responses to each of the tasks in one document. The Canvas grading system does not recognize two or more documents within a submission — it only sees the first document. This is why all three parts must be in one document. You must use the TNT 700.1P Professional Communications Response Guide to respond and submit.
