This guidebook, designed to assist colleges and universities to meet National Council for the Social Studies/National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education program standards, is one of three documents that deal with national standards for social studies teachers. The guidebook is intended to help colleges and universities assess the subject matter strengths and weaknesses of their social studies teacher education students to determine the extent to which their programs meet the national standards. Following an introduction, the guidebook consists of three main sections: (1) a set of guidelines on ways of meeting the standards; (2) a compendium of examples of good assessment tasks; and (3) a copy of an article that describes a perspective on using program approval standards and processes to improve programs for preparing history teachers. The guidebook offers examples of and suggestions on how teacher education programs faculty might meet the NCSS/NCATE standards. Discusses incorporating "National Standards for Social Studies Teachers" and "Program Standards for the Initial Preparation of Social Studies Teachers" into college and university programs. (BT)
