IACTE Responses to Proposed CAEP Standards

IACTE Colleagues –

Thank you for a very informative and thoughtful discussion at our meeting on Friday.  Attached is a final draft of the IACTE response to the proposed CAEP Standards.  These comments are drawn both from the notes at the individual tables and from the collective discussion of those in attendance.  Please advise me of suggestions that you may have based on your own notes.  I plan to send the final response after noon on Thursday.
