Last Chance for Comments on Revised Teacher Prep Standards in Gifted
June 4 is the deadline to submit comments on the proposed revisions to the
NAGC-CEC Teacher Preparation Standards in Gifted Education
, which were originally approved in 2006. The standards are used to guide reviews of teacher training programs in gifted education as part of the school/college of education accreditation process. The revised standards include new supporting descriptions for each standard that explain the standard’s scope and intent.
After NAGC has reviewed your comments and made any revisions, the standards will go to NCATE (soon to be known as CAEP) for approval. After that, university programs – and those who base in-service teacher training on the principles contained in the standards – may begin using the standards to guide their work beginning in the spring of 2014.
