The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) recently released new core teaching standards that “outline what teachers should know and be able to do to help all students reach the goal of being college and career ready in today’s world.” CCSSO is inviting the education community and the public at large to submit comments until October 15, 2010.
To review the document, please go to http://www.ccsso.org/Resources/Publications/Model_Core_Teaching_Standards.html. You can submit your comments through a survey, here: http://ccsso.teaching-standards.sgizmo.com/s3/. We encourage you to distribute the standards and the survey to the networks of educators and teacher preparation programs in your state.
If your state is interested in hosting a focus group to provide input on the standards, please contact Kathleen Paliokas, at CCSSO by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
