The Framework for Teaching Clusters (FFT Clusters) describes skills demonstrated by teachers and are grounded in an understanding of the nature of human learning. The FFT Clusters are an outgrowth of the Framework for Teaching, which has been validated through empirical studies as predictive of student learning as measured by state assessments. The FFT Clusters distill the "big ideas" of the Framework's 22 components into an efficient tool that can serve as the foundation for many purposes, most importantly professional growth by teachers, not only through their own reflection on practice, but also through their conversations with colleagues, mentors and coaches, and supervisors.
