Cashman, Timothy G.; McDermott, Benjamin R. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2013
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.). The reality, however, is that this geopolitical border is fluid, allowing connections between sociopolitical zones. The researchers…

In Ontario, Canada, both the educational community and the public, which is understood to include parents, students and citizens of the province, participated in a multi-phased, longitudinal, dialogic inquiry to develop a set of ethical standards for the teaching profession.

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. Those teachers who reflect on their practice, particularly while they are teaching (what Schon terms reflection-in-action), are best able to do so. It is the intent of this article to investigate the role of teacher…

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;…

Teacher induction is defined as the transition from student to professional and involves the greatest need for supervision and support.

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). Due to differing emphases across contexts, PDS partners may encounter hidden barriers and mismatched perspectives (Stevens,…

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." These quotes were taken from preservice teachers' papers early in their teacher education program, in which they were asked to describe what…

Muchmore, James A. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
Teachers appear as characters in a wide range of literary writing. To date, few scholars have systematically studied the teachers who appear in works of literature. Much of the existing work has focused on relatively small numbers of teachers and has been presented in the form of brief essays rather than formal research (e.g., Booth, 2006; Crume,…

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…

Santagata, Rossella; Guarino, Jody – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
In this article, the authors argue that teacher education programs should equip future teachers with skills for engaging in productive collaboration focused on improving instruction.
