Inspiring Teaching

Preparing Teachers to Succeed in Mission-Driven Schools
Edited by Sharon Feiman-Nemser, Eran Tamir, and Karen Hammerness

How can we best prepare pre-service teachers to succeed in the classroom—and to stay in teaching over time? The one-size-fits-all model of traditional teacher education programs has been widely criticized, yet the most popular alternative—fast-track programs—have at best a mixed record of success. An increasing number of districts and charter networks are trying to fill this void with a third option: “grow-your-own” teacher preparation programs tailored to specific school contexts and the needs of the populations they serve.

Teachers Bridging Difference

Exploring Identity with Art
Marit Dewhurst, Foreword by Dorinda J. Carter Andrews

Teachers Bridging Difference describes how educators can move out of their comfort zones and practice connecting with others across differences to become culturally responsive teachers. Based on a course developed for preservice teachers, the book illustrates how educators can draw on the visual arts as a resource to explore their own identities and those of their students, and how to increase their understanding of the ways our lives intersect across sociocultural differences.

Teaching Core Practices in Teacher Education

Edited by Pam Grossman

In Teaching Core Practices in Teacher Education, Pam Grossman and her colleagues advocate an approach to practice-based teacher education that identifies “core practices” of teaching and supports novice teachers in learning how to enact them competently. Examples of core practices include facilitating whole-class discussion, eliciting student thinking, and maintaining classroom norms. The contributors argue that teacher education needs to do more to help teachers master these professional skills, rather than simply emphasizing content knowledge.
