Colleges and universities engaged in the preparation of art teachers address a broad range of issues. Questions concerning specific education requirements leading to certification, approaches to curriculum development and assessment, opportunities for clinical experiences, and exposure to teaching methodologies and classroom management strategies are common to art teacher preparation programs. Additional questions arise concerning the utilization of technology, the diversity of student populations, and the utilization of museums and community resources. The standards delineated in this booklet are designed to be relevant to those colleges and universities with established art teacher preparation programs of excellence as well as to serve as a guide for programs working to improve their level of professional preparation. Following an introduction, the booklet is divided into these sections: "Standards for the Art Education Program"; "Standards for Art Education Faculty"; "Standards and Skills for Art Teacher Candidates" ("Content of Art"; "Knowledge of Students"; "Curriculum Development"; "Instruction"; "Assessment in Art Education"; "Professional Responsibility"); and "References."
