A Multistate Review of Professional Teaching Standards. Issues & Answers. REL 2009-No. 075
White, Melissa Eiler; Makkonen, Reino; Stewart, Kari Becker
Regional Educational Laboratory West
This review of teaching standards in six states (California, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas) focuses on the structure, target audience, and selected content of the standards to inform California's revision of its teaching standards. The report was developed at the request of key education agencies in California. The review examined each state's teaching standards and supporting documents. Each of the six states whose standards were reviewed has taken a distinctive approach to the design of its teachings standards, and each set of standards may offer different insights to the people involved in developing and supporting teaching standards in other states. Collectively, the six sets of state teaching standards reviewed offer various options for broad consideration, such as structure and target groups of teachers. They also offer specific details on issues and topics emphasized and on language choices. (Contains 5 notes, 1 box and 5 tables.) [For the associated summary report, see ED505874.]
