Updated Multistate Review of Professional Teaching Standards. REL Technical Brief. REL 2010-No. 014
White, Melissa Eiler; Makkonen, Reino; Stewart, Kari Becker
Regional Educational Laboratory West
This review of teaching standards in six states updates a 2009 review (White, Makkonen, and Stewart 2009) by incorporating California's recently adopted teaching standards alongside those from Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas. The previous review was developed at the request of key education agencies in California to inform the state's revision of its teaching standards. This review focuses on the structure and target audience of the six states' teaching standards and on selected content. Each of the six states whose standards were reviewed has taken a distinctive approach to the design of its teaching 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 their structure and the target group of teachers. They also offer details on issues and topics emphasized and language choices. (Contains 5 tables and 3 notes.) [This REL Technical Brief was prepared for the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance, Institute of Education Sciences (IES) by Regional Educational Laboratory West, administered by WestEd.]
