Developing Foreign Language Teacher Standards in Uruguay
Kuhlman, Natalie A.
GIST Education and Learning Research Journal, v4 p107-126 Nov 2010
This article documents the development of foreign language (FL) teacher standards in Uruguay. It begins by discussing what it means to be a teacher, what standards are and are not, and how they can be helpful or misused in teacher development. In the proposal, a distinction is made between teacher preparation programs that are course-based and those that are standards-based, where standards cross particular course boundaries. Finally, the collaborative process used to develop the standards for the situation in Uruguay is described, which was based, fundamentally, on the TESOL p-12 ESL Teacher Preparation Standards.
