Welcome to the CEE website! - Previous Revision

CEE serves those NCTE members who are engaged in the preparation, support, and continuing education of teachers of English language arts/literacy.

Review the "NCTE Standards for Initial Preparation of Teachers of Secondary English Language Arts 7-12" prepared and submitted to NCATE on April 13 by the CEE Standards Revision Writing Task Force.
This document contains standards for prospective teachers who seek to complete English language arts teacher preparation programs at the initial secondary level. These standards reflect what ELA teachers should know and be able to do in the areas of content knowledge, content pedagogy, learners and learning, and professional knowledge and skills.  Each standard and its related elements were written to progress from a theoretical/research supported knowledge base to the application of the knowledge in professional practice.

Since the National Gallery of Writing opened on October 20, 2009, more than 3,300 galleries were created and nearly 33,000 writing contributions were submitted. While the Gallery is now closed for submissions, as a searchable archive, it's a great resource for you to use when involving others in writing. You are invited to contribute to CEE’s gallery for The National Day on Writing!
