Criteria for Approving Teacher Education Programs in Georgia Institutions.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Planning and Development.
The criteria listed in this manual are designed to evaluate teacher education programs in Georiga colleges that voluntarily agree to meet these standards. The standards were designed so that each institution has the opportunity to reflect its philosophy in programs offered, since most of the criteria reflect broad experiences that should be provided by each program. The first chapter details the roles and responsibilities of teacher education programs in Georgia, and chapter 2 discusses general criteria for approving teacher education programs. Chapter 3 lists criteria for teaching fields within the early childhood, (K-4), middle grades (4-8), secondary (7-12), and other instructional levels. Leadership field criteria, for administration, supervision, school services, special education, and vocational education, are discussed in the fourth chapter. Chapter 5 lists service field criteria for such positions as media specialist, school counselor, school social worker, and school psychologist. Guidelines for developing criteria for teacher education programs are listed in the last chapter. (CJB)
