What Makes a Good Teacher: NBPTS

Edwin D. Bell


Introduction

  • In 1983 the federal government released a report titled, A Nation at Risk. The members of the commission who developed the report argued that declines in educational performance are the result of inadequacies in content, expectations, time, and teaching (National Commission on Excellence in Education, 1983).


Introduction (continued)

  • In 1986, the Carnegie Task Force on Teaching a profession issued a report, A Nation Prepared: Teachers for the 21st Century. The leading recommendation of the report called for the creation of a National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, 1989).


Introduction (Continued)

  • The National Board, established in 1987, issued a 1989 policy statement, What Teachers Should Know and Be Able to Do,This policy statement identified five core propositions for accomplished teachers (National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, 1989).
