Teacher Recognition: An Exercise in Authentic Professional Development
Bock, Shelley H.
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n1 p30-33 Jan 2010
In the field of education, measuring the quality of teaching has reached a level of critical concern not only in K-12 academic education but also in the field of Career and Technical Education (CTE). Measuring the quality of teaching is integral to maintaining high standards. The state of Mississippi recognized a need for a systematic way to identify those secondary CTE teachers who are demonstrating high-quality practices that show positive results. The establishment of the Exemplary Teaching Program (ETP), a competitive process for evaluation, was developed to recognize teachers demonstrating standards-based exemplary practices worthy of replication. Modeled after the original exemplary teacher recognition program established by the former National Center for Career and Technical Education, this award program provides a structured process for demonstrating exemplary teaching that is aligned to customized standards of practice. The basics of the program can be used by anyone to develop a relevant, statewide evaluation program for CTE teachers.
