### In the Instruction domain of the rubric for T.A.P., two of the indicators are odd because the teacher's proficiency for these two indicators is supposed to be established "over the course of multiple observations". What are these two indicators?

Lesson Structure & Pacing

• B.

Standards & Objectives

• C.

Thinking & Problem Solving

• D.

C. Thinking & Problem Solving
Explanation
The correct answer is Thinking & Problem Solving. The reason these two indicators are odd is because the teacher's proficiency for them is supposed to be established "over the course of multiple observations". This means that the teacher's ability to effectively incorporate thinking and problem-solving skills into their instruction cannot be accurately assessed based on just one observation. It requires multiple observations over a period of time to determine the teacher's consistency and effectiveness in promoting these skills in their teaching.
