INTASC Principles: How They Are Addressed by Five Specialty Program Association Standards. inForum
Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
The Interstate New Teachers Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) principles were first developed in May 2001 by the Center for Improving Teacher Quality at the Council for Chief State School Officers. These principles were developed as standards for licensing teachers who work with students with disabilities. Both of the program accreditation associations--National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE)--have strongly encouraged SPAs to incorporate INTASC principles into their standards. The purpose of this document is to delineate how five sets of specialty program association standards address the INTASC principles for general education teachers, thereby encouraging teacher education programs to incorporate INTASC principles into their preparation of teacher candidates and enabling new teachers to better serve students with disabilities in general education classrooms.
