Philip, Thomas M.; Souto-Manning, Mariana; Anderson, Lauren; Horn, Ilana; J. Carter Andrews, Dorinda; Stillman, Jamy; Varghese, Manka – Journal of Teacher Education, 2019
Reformers are increasingly calling for and adopting practice-based approaches to teacher preparation, with particular emphasis on identifying and centering core practices. In this article, we argue that organizing teacher education around core practices brings its own risks, including the risk of peripheralizing equity and justice. Situating our…

Rector-Aranda, Amy – Journal of Teacher Education, 2019
Cammarota and Romero describe how they utilized a framework they call "critically compassionate intellectualism" (CCI)--a trilogy of critical pedagogy, authentic caring, and social justice-oriented curriculum--to lift up previously disempowered Latinx youth. CCI can also serve as an appropriate framework for emancipatory pedagogy and…

Windschitl, Mark A.; Stroupe, David – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
The foundational document of the current science standards movement--the "Framework for K-12 Science Education"--is grounded in research about how students from diverse backgrounds learn science and the conditions under which they can participate in knowledge-building activities of the discipline. We argue that teacher educators should…

Reiser, Brian J.; Michaels, Sarah; Moon, Jean; Bell, Tara; Dyer, Elizabeth; Edwards, Kelsey D.; McGill, Tara A. W.; Novak, Michael; Park, Aimee – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
The vision for science teaching in the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards requires a radical departure from traditional science teaching. Science literacy is defined as three-dimensional (3D), in which students engage in science and engineering practices to develop and apply science disciplinary ideas…

Policymakers have increasingly worked to combat teacher turnover by implementing induction programs for early-career teachers. Yet the existing evidence for the effects of induction on turnover is mixed. Drawing on data from the three most recent administrations of the Schools and Staffing and Teacher Follow-Up Surveys, as well as the Beginning…

Gibbons, Lynsey K.; Cobb, Paul – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
Instructional improvement initiatives in many districts include instructional coaching as a primary form of job-embedded support for teachers. However, the coaching literature provides little guidance about what activities coaches should engage in with teachers to improve instruction. When researchers do propose activities, they rarely justify why…

The rapid turnover of novice teachers is a stubborn challenge plaguing schools across the country. The field has come to some consensus about key elements of effective novice teacher support that have potential to ameliorate this problem, although this knowledge has been applied in an inconsistent fashion. Beginning teacher support is a complex…

Heineke, Amy J.; Ryan, Ann Marie; Tocci, Charles – Journal of Teacher Education, 2015
Within the current federal, state, and local contexts of educational reform, teachers must be recognized as central actors in policy work, but rarely do we explicitly consider preparing teachers to become policy actors. Understanding these implications for teacher education, we investigate teacher candidates' learning of the complexity and…

Sato, Mistilina – Journal of Teacher Education, 2014
The edTPA, a nationally available performance assessment for teacher candidates, has recently been developed and implemented in teacher education programs across the United States.

Matsko, Kavita Kapadia; Hammerness, Karen – Journal of Teacher Education, 2014
The literature on preparing teachers for urban schools provides a rationale for helping candidates understand the particular cultures of students. However, research has not sufficiently "unpacked" features of the setting that programs can address; nor has it discussed how programs tailor teaching approaches to their specific contexts.…
