Getting familiar with the Conceptual Framework

Committee members have received the CF in file form or as a hard copy; for others who are interested in reading our current CF, you can get to it from the "NCATE" link on the COE website or by clicking on this link: http://soe.kean.edu/~ncate/conceptualframework.htm .

We have the first committee meeting on April 27th. Let's start the conversation about the process for its revision before the meeting. Please take some time to read through it and begin thinking about: Testing our belief statements; showing that we value how our candidates impact their students' learning; and seeing NCATE's Standard #1 in your own program -- what does it look like for your students?
