Opportunity-To-Learn: Standards Statement of Principles.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
This document offers collected information about Opportunity-to-Learn Standards, which are intended to provide a framework that makes it possible for all students to have equitable access to high-quality education. The first two sections outline why Opportunity-to-Learn Standards are necessary and what they should do. The Summary states that Opportunity-to-Learn Standards should provide: time for students to learn and reflect; time for teachers to plan, teach, and reflect; appropriate learning resources; and resources from the community. A letter confirms the support of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education for the Standards. A list of organizations represented at the Opportunity-to-Learn/Delivery Standards Conference concludes the document. (SR)
