These standards directly align with the standards that the Hewlett Foundation has identified as necessary for deeper learning. This grant will support the board to drive deeper learning for students by (a) exploring what it takes to embed accomplished teaching practices in schools and systems and (b) building an evidence base, codifying these learnings, and spreading them to more places.

ALL GRANTS TO THIS GRANTEE Nov 17, 2014 $198,908 for a study of the intersection of deeper learning and teacher certificate standards of practice The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) was created in 1987 to develop standards of accomplished practice for pre K-12 educators and a process that reliably assesses when a teacher has met those standards. With Hewlett Foundation support, NBPTS will compare its standards with deeper learning competencies to determine whether NBPTS’s teacher support materials could be a conduit for moving knowledge of the competencies into the teaching workforce in a systemic and sustainable way.
