ABSTRACT
This study investigated the effect of curriculum materials used in beginning teachers' classrooms on their ability to meet their stated goals of implementing the Standards based teaching practices utilized in their university coursework and internship experiences. Seven teachers were observed, interviewed, and videotaped during their second year of teaching. We conclude that Standards-based curriculum materials are necessary, but not sufficient, to support beginning teachers. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
