Literature, Research & Resources

Literature and Research Related to Personnel Preparation Standards

Literature Reports

The literature reports were developed to support the Initial and Advanced EI/ECSE Specialty Sets knowledge and skill statements.  They are organized by the seven Initial and Advanced CEC Professional Preparation Standards with references identified for each Specialty Set knowledge and skill statement in three categories of literature:  research based, literature/theory based, and practice based.  The literature reports may be used to identify readings to include in pre-service and in-service preparation, as well as be resources for preparing literature reviews for manuscripts.
