Berchini, Christina N. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017

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.

Matias, Cheryl E.; Grosland, Tanetha J. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2016

Kennedy, Mary – Journal of Teacher Education, 2016
Teacher education programs typically teach novices about one part of teaching at a time. We might offer courses on different topics--cultural foundations, learning theory, or classroom management--or we may parse teaching practice itself into a set of discrete techniques, such as core teaching practices, that can be taught individually. Missing…
