The National Board has introduced a new resource called ATLAS (Accomplished Teaching, Learning and Schools) to help educators improve their practice. ATLAS is a unique, searchable online library of authentic videos showing accomplished teachers at work in the classroom. Each video is accompanied by the teacher's written reflection about the instruction or activity shown. Aligned to professional teaching standards, ATLAS serves as a powerful window into what accomplished teaching looks like.
ATLAS is currently being used by states and districts on a pilot basis as a professional development resource for pre-service and early career teachers. It is also being used by principals and other teacher evaluators as a resource to help identify accomplished teaching.
