The Teacher Quality Toolkit addresses the continuum of teacher learning by providing tools that can be used to improve both preservice, and inservice teacher education. Each chapter provides self assessment tools that can guide progress toward improved teacher quality and describes resources for designing exemplary programs and practices. Chapters 2 and 3 are self contained, so that leaders of higher education institutions and school/district leaders may separately consider the information of most interest to them independently of each other. However it is recommended that district and school leaders and leaders of higher education institutions use the tools and resources together as suggested in Chapter 4, which describes resources for designing exemplary school-university partnerships. Appended are: (1) Teacher?Preparation??for?Standards-based?Education?Survey; (2) Teacher?Preparation?Evaluation?System?Audit; (3) Rubric?and?Examples??for?Evaluating?the?Evidence of?Effectiveness of?Teacher? Preparation?Programs; (4) Professional?Development?Program?Audit; (5) Professional?Learning?Community?Checklist Development; and (6) Partnership?Audit.
Descriptors: Inservice Teacher Education, Teacher Effectiveness, Educational Improvement, Program Design, Partnerships in Education, College School Cooperation, Standards, Check Lists, Program Effectiveness, Audits (Verification)
