NCATE Has a Lot to Say to Future Social Studies Teachers: A Response to Sam Wineburg
Adler, Susan; Dougan, Alberta; Garcia, Jesus
Phi Delta Kappan, v87 n5 p396-400 Jan 2006
The preparation of teachers in any discipline is a complex enterprise with an array of stakeholders serving as gatekeepers. In the May "Kappan", Sam Wineburg focused his analysis of the preparation of social studies teachers on the curriculum standards of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and on the teacher preparation standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). In this response to Mr. Wineburg's article criticizing NCATE's standards for social studies teachers, the authors argue that NCATE's position on what teachers should know is actually not so different from what Mr. Wineburg proposes. (Contains 8 endnotes.)
