Pitfalls of the NCATE Process: One Perspective.
This paper offers guidelines for an institution preparing for an evaluation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. The model includes consideration of the institution's guiding philosophy, the knowledge base frequently found attached to course syllabi, curriculum delivery mechanisms (instructional strategies, techniques, and methods), support services, evaluation, and final products identification. Other areas unique to the institution can be added to the model. Areas are outlined that should be questioned and discussed; e.g., design and delivery of curriculum, clinical experiences and school relationships, and faculty development. Areas are identified in which practical solutions to current problems or difficulties are possible. It is pointed out that blame or denial of realities may offer a focus for constructive change if these attitudes are faced honestly. (JD)
