Negotiating the Standards Maze: A Model for Teacher Education Programs. White Paper.
Tomei, Lance J.
This paper describes one college faculty member's experiences coordinating departmental preparations for a 5-year, continuing program approval/accreditation visit from the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the Florida Board of Regents. It notes that in addition to the global FDOE and NCATE standards for initial or continuing program approval/accreditation, a teacher preparation program must attend to several specific standards: the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices; Performance Indicators for Effective Teachers; Florida Professional Education Competencies; Florida-adopted subject area competencies; subject matter content standards for Florida teachers; Sunshine State Standards; Florida Performance Standards for Teachers of English for Speakers of Other Languages; NCATE constituents; International Society for Technology in Education National Educational Technology Standards; conceptual framework; Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium core standards; and National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The college chose to use the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices as a baseline, developing a crosswalk of all applicable standards against the accomplished practices. The crosswalk is included in a table. (Contains 10 references.) (SM)
