The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) recently released new core teaching standards that â€œoutline what teachers should know and be able to do to help all students reach the goal of being college and career ready in todayâ€™s world.â€ 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.
