NBPTS announces public review period for standards
| Jan 24, 2011
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) announces its public review period for Literacy: Reading-Language Arts Standards for early and middle childhood teachers. Practicing teachers fill a majority of seats on standards committees with other members representing districts, states, and higher education.
NBPTS Standards reflect the Five Core Propositions that are the foundation of National Board Certification; identify specific knowledge, skills, and attitudes that support accomplished practice, while emphasizing the holistic nature of teaching; illustrate how a teacher’s professional judgment is reflected in action; and describe how the standards come to life in different settings.
Literacy: Reading-Language Arts Standards will be available for public review January 24 through February 13. The standards can be accessed online at this webpage.
