A recently constructed border wall stands within walking distance of Border High School (BHS) and was created to impede the flow of people, goods, fauna, and contraband from Mexico into the United States (U.S.).

Jaeger, Elizabeth L. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2013
In the context of rapidly changing classroom environments, it is crucial that teachers be able to make appropriate decisions.

Martin, Peter Clyde – Issues in Teacher Education, 2013
One of the major hurdles in preparing preservice teachers to differentiate instruction has been that they tend not to see much differentiated instruction in actual classrooms (Benjamin, 2002; Tomlinson, 1999). There always may be a contradiction in wanting to promote change in instructional practices while, at the same time, relying on a teacher…

Rogers, Carrie; Scales, Roya Q. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2013
Although preparing teachers to be leaders is a common goal of teacher education programs, often "teaching" and "leading" are located in separate departments" (Mangin & Stoelinga, 2009, p. 56). Recently, however, the assessment of teacher leadership has become important in preservice teacher education. This importance…

Kiss, Katherine L.; Townsend, Jane S. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
The literature indicates that teacher educators have a responsibility to prepare new teachers philosophically and practically as reflective "researchers" who are in the habit of systematic, active, and goal-directed problem-posing and are attentive to the processes in which they are immersed (Braun & Crumpler, 2004; Cochran-Smith-Lytle, 1999;…

Many, Joyce E.; Fisher, Teresa R.; Ogletree, Susan; Taylor, Dee – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
Professional development schools (PDSs) consist of collaborations across institutions whose missions, organizational structures, and cultures are distinct and which, in some ways, may conflict (Sandholtz & Finan, 1998).

Sauer, Janet S.; Kasa, Christi – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
"These families must be so sad. I just wonder what they do and if they have any type of normal life." "I am not sure how I will work with parents. I think they probably look to the school for a lot of help."
