Support for the California Standards for the Teaching Profession

Recommended by the Framework Advisory Task Force and
Approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing

AS-2358-97/TEKR - January 23-24, 1997

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University commend the California Department of Education, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing and the Framework Advisory Task Force that developed the California Standards for the Teaching Profession; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU support the California Standards for the Teaching Profession; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU urge campus senates to distribute the California Standards for the Teaching Profession to their campus community for use as a valuable vehicle for discussions of teaching and learning.

RATIONALE: We believe this document which "provides a common language and a vision of the scope and complexity of teaching by which all teachers can define and develop their practice" contains valuable information on engaging and supporting all students in learning, on designing learning experiences for students and on assessment of learning. Although the standards were developed for teachers of K-12, they can be a valuable resource for discussion and implementation on our campuses.

APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY -- March 13-14, 1997
