Advancing Teacher Development: Institutions of Higher Education Use the NBPTS Standards To Create Communities for Professional Learning.
National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, Arlington, VA.
This monograph presents eight cases of schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDEs) in which faculty members are creating experiences in teacher education that are standards-based, elevate the conversation about the profession among teachers, and create more coherent wholeness in which being an educator includes membership in a distinct professional community.

Tompkins); "Preparing Math and Science Teachers: The NBPTS Standards and a Reflective Portfolio Process Help New Teachers Begin Their Practice Thinking Like National Board Certified Teachers" (Dan Richard Saurino); "Reforming Teacher Education: South Carolina Institutions of Higher Education and Schools Engage in Systemic Reform that Uses the NBPTS Standards and Focuses on Cultural Diversity, Technology, and Community Involvement" (Earline M.
