A License to Teach: Raising Standards for Teaching Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors provide a comprehensive blueprint for developing a better system of teacher liscensing. They detail the essential components of that plan--from establishing rigorous professional standards to developing performance assesments, as well as institutional accreditation, advanced certification for individual teachers, and appropriate internships.

Rich with examples of real-life standards, exams, assessments, and other useful tools, A License to Teach not only shares the wisdom of professionals who are experienced in setting accreditation and certification standards, but offers important advice on how to prepare and evaluate aspiring teachers for the challenges of their profession.

Book News Annotation:

Arguing that the current process for teacher licensing is inadequate, the authors evaluate the system and propose a plan for licensing analogous to those in other professions.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 203-215) and index.
