Norris, William E.
This paper presents a proposed statement of qualifications and guidelines for the preparation and certification of teachers of English to speakers of other languages in the United States. It is designed to assist teacher certification agencies and educational institutions in the establishment of certification standards and in the design and evaluation of teacher education programs. The statement (1) defines the role of the English-as-a-second-language (ESL) teacher in American schools, (2) describes his personal qualities and professional competencies, and (3) states the objectives and categorizes important features of a teacher education program designed to develop ESL teachers of high professional ability.
