Proposed Standards for State Approval of Teacher Education.
National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification.; Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The first of four chapters in this booklet on proposed minimum standards is a general discussion of accreditation procedures; it is designed to assist departments of education in reviewing, developing, and applying standards for legal accreditation or approval of programs for educating teachers. Chapter 2 contains principles and standards for the noncurricular provisions that support a program in teacher education: purposes and objective, organization and administration, student personnel program, admission policies and practices, faculty and facilities and instructional materials. Chapter 3 and 4 set forth basic curriculum principles and standards for undergraduate and graduate programs. (The introduction notes that revision of the 1952 circular involved development of standards in the various fields, provided in this document in much greater detail.) The undergraduate section covers general education, professional education, and teaching majors in elementary school teaching, art education, business education, English, education of exceptional children, modern foreign languages, health education, health and physical education, home economics, industrial arts education, school libraries, mathematics, music education, science, and social studies. The graduate section, besides general guidelines, covers specific programs for classroom teaching, supervisory specialization, and service specializations. Appended are recommendations regarding interstate certification. (JS)
