ACTFL/NCATE Teacher Preparation Standards: Call for Commentary

Monday, May 14, 2012   (0 Comments)

From ACTFL:

The ACTFL Program Standards for the Preparation of Foreign Language Teachers that were developed in 2002 in collaboration with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) are now due for revision. Our Teacher Preparation Standards were first developed in 2002, but NCATE has adopted new principles and the ACTFL standards must now align with those new principles.

ACTFL and the Standards Collaborative Board appointed a task force to develop a draft of the revised standards and now it is time to get input from the language field. It is important to get broad representation from the field, so please use this link to view the new standards and provide your comments: http://www.actfl.org/revstandards. There you will find the revised standards and a questionnaire.

Please complete your review as soon as possible and no later than June 1 so that your input may be included in the ACTFL report to NCATE. If you have already taken the survey, please disregard this message. Thank you for your participation.
