Standards of Program Quality and Effectiveness for Professional Teacher Preparation Programs for Multiple and Single Subject Teaching Credentials with a (Bilingual) Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (CLAD/BCLAD) Emphasis.
California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, Sacramento.
This guide outlines the 33 standards that professional teacher preparation programs in California must meet in order to issue multiple and single subject teaching credentials with a (Bilingual) Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (CLAD/BCLAD) emphasis. It also provides background information on bilingual education in the United States and California, including recent California legislative initiatives that led to the establishment of the new CLAD/BCLAD credential. The 33 standards are grouped into five categories: (1) institutional resources and coordination; (2) admission and student services; (3) curriculum; (4) field experiences; and (5) candidate competence and performance. Each entry contains a statement of the standard, an explanation of the rationale behind it, and a list of factors for evaluators to consider in determining whether a given program meets the standard. A list of 16 preconditions for the approval of teacher education programs is also provided. (Contains 64 references.) (MDM)
