This 20-page, paperback booklet contains the complete set of eight standards and their supporting "indicators" that are derived from previous iterations, including the "Essential Elements" and "Principles of Effective Practice."
The standards underwent a yearlong process of national reactor panels, the same standards-setting process that has been used in many states to develop content standards in reading/language arts, mathematics, and science. The standards and indicators are written in plain language, and are suitable to both education and community-based audiences. Paperback, 20 pages (2009).
