The National Dual Language Education Teacher Preparation Standards

by Michael D. Guerrero and Joan R. Lachance

The NDLETPS are intended to provide guidance for the preparation of dual language education teachers and other related school personnel, while allowing for the flexibility to address myriad local contextual realities and language groups, inclusive of and also beyond Spanish-English programs.

The NDLETPS draws from a variety of sources in presenting six Standards: Bilingualism and Bilteracy; Sociocultural Competence; Dual Language Instructional Practices and Pedagogy; Authentic Assessment in Dual Language; Professionalism, Advocacy, and Agency; and Program Design and Curricular Leadership.
