A review of the literature was conducted to investigate how researchers have identified expert teachers. Each of the 29 studies used selection criteria that fell into one or more of the following market categories: (1) years of experience; (2) social recognition; (3) professional or social group membership; and (4) other performance-based criteria. The results of the literature review indicate variability in the selection criteria for identifying expert teachers. A rubric to determine teacher expertise is proposed that incorporates findings from this literature review. (Contains 1 table and 56 references.) (Author/SLD)
