Wake, Donna; Mills, Michael – Issues in Teacher Education, 2018
Effective professional development (PD) can be a powerful tool in school success and teacher satisfaction; however, teachers often report their PD experiences as lackluster or not responsive to their immediate needs (Desimone, 2011; Guskey, 2009; Lutrick & Szabo, 2012). Teachers need professional support in today's educational environment to…

McCullough, Ruanda Garth; Ryan, Ann Marie – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
The need for sophisticated and highly skilled educators in urban schools is painfully obvious, even to the most casual observer. National and local test data demonstrate that students in urban schools are generally not achieving at the same levels as are their suburban and more affluent peers.

Stetson, Ranae; Stetson, Elton; Sinclair, Becky; Nix, Karen – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
The literature is sated with calls for more and better communication between home and school. Teachers believe that parents should be more involved, but seem at a loss as to how to make that happen, and parents often feel disconnected to their child's teacher and the school. Few would argue that it is the responsibility of classroom teachers to…

Because there is limited research on effective early field experiences and, particularly, on the potential of laboratory experiences to expose teacher candidates to a diverse student population, this study evaluates one such placement. As part of the placement, the teacher candidate provided tutoring at an on-campus model alternative program for…

Founded in 1997, the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) designed a system that balances three sources of evidence in a single accreditation system: (1) that the program's graduates are qualified, competent, and caring beginning teachers; (2) that the program faculty investigates the factors that improve program quality; and (3) that…

Payne, Elizabethe; Smith, Melissa – Issues in Teacher Education, 2010
High school is a profoundly social experience for students. Having friends is central to being "visible"--to having an identity--in school. Social positioning, friendship groups, romance dramas, and the battle to "fit in" gain the attention and drain the energy of students far more than do academic pursuits. Lesbian, Gay,…

Payne, Maggie; Miller, Mimi – Issues in Teacher Education, 2009
Today, the term "quality" cannot be used without evidence--evidence of learning for teacher candidates, and evidence that these teachers impact their young learners. In response to this call for evidence, teacher education programs are currently developing assessment systems that emphasize the analysis of data to make educational decisions about…

Alger, Christianna; Kopcha, Theodore J. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2009
