5D™ Smart Card Version 4.0 (8.5 x 11 inch)


The 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning™ (5D) Smart Cards (8.5 x 11 inch) are intended to help schools and districts successfully implement high quality instructional practices. The 5D Smart Cards reflect the comprehensive instructional framework developed by University of Washington - CEL faculty after multi-year research efforts to define the core elements of what constitutes good teaching. The 5D Smart Cards are a great tool for increasing consistency in conversations about instruction in schools and districts. Suggested uses for the 5D Smart Cards include: using the tools as the “lens” for classroom observations, posting the Smart Cards in classrooms as guides for teachers, and referencing the Smart Cards during lesson planning and staff meetings about instructional practices. In addition, the 5D Smart Cards are a perfect tool to guide one’s viewing of CEL’s classroom instructional DVDs that support the enhancement of teaching and learning.
