Comments Sought on Revised Teacher Prep Standards in Gifted
NAGC is inviting comment on the proposed revisions to the
NAGC-CEC Teacher Preparation Standards in Gifted Education
, which were originally approved in 2006. The standards, which are used to guide reviews of teacher training programs in gifted education as part of the school/college of education accreditation process, have been streamlined in the revision and also now include supporting descriptions for each standard that explain the standard's scope and intent.
Once NAGC has received your comments and suggestions, the draft revision will be finalized and submitted to NCATE for approval in the fall. Once approved, university programs — and those who base inservice teacher training on the principles contained in the standards — may begin using the standards to guide their work beginning in the spring of 2014.
