The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) released their new publication, “Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics” in February. This comprehensive document seeks to describe a national vision for the initial preparation of P-12 mathematics teachers. Members of the NCTM national board were part of the review team and provided feedback on the draft document.
The standards document focuses on knowledge, skills, and dispositions of teacher candidates as well as program characteristics and assessment. While the manuscript specifically addresses the preparation of early childhood, upper elementary, middle school, and high school teachers, the standards are also intended to provide guidance and support for special education and ELL teachers.
A PDF copy of the standards document is available without cost at https://amte.net/standards.
