Publisher Comments:

This valuable resource is the definitive guide to nationally accredited institutions that prepare teachers. Students embarking on teaching careers need guidance to select the college or university programs that will best prepare them for the complex demands of today's classrooms and students. As the profession continues to change dramatically, aspiring teachers must meet higher standards from school districts, state licensing boards, and professional associations. Many of these standards begin with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).Only half of the country's teacher preparation programs have met NCATE's rigorous standards. This guide provides vital information about each of the accredited colleges and universities--from tuition, size, and length of program to descriptions of noteworthy program features, including clinical experience opportunities. In addition to providing detailed information on the 500+ accredited programs across the nation, this guide lists the accredited programs that meet especially high standards set by leaders in each teaching field. The guide's resource materials make it easy for the student, guidance counselor, and career advisor to gain up-to-date information about becoming a teacher today. A Guide to College Programs in Teacher Preparation is updated every two years.
