Promoting the Use of Content Standards: Recommendations for Teacher Educators
Wheatley, Karl
Young Children, v58 n2 p96-102 Mar 2003
Emphasizing subject matter content standards in teacher education can improve early childhood education and yield long-term benefits for the development and learning of the whole child. The author discusses in depth his five recommendations to teacher educators for learning content standards and incorporating them into teaching. These are: (1) learn about the content standards; (2) reexamine beliefs about subject matter; (3) emphasize content standards in coursework; (4) develop resources that clearly reflect the content standards; and (5) participate in the revision and improvement of state and national standards. (Contains 2 online resources and a list of national K-12 standards.)
