This article describes how four teacher education programs took up a legislative initiative to better partner with local schools, families, and communities. It illustrates the impacts that these collaborations had on preservice teachers.

by Kathryn Strom, Jason Margolis & Nihat Polat - 2019
The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, we aim to problematize the construct of “teacher dispositions” through a critical synthesis of literature and a discussion of a rhizomatic perspective to generate a (re)conceptualization that is more closely aligned with the immensely complex nature of teaching and learning. Second, we draw on samples of university-generated teacher disposition assessment tools to provide concrete examples that “put to work” this rethinking of dispositions, and which demonstrates that the field may be showing signs of moving toward a more contextual understanding of the construct.

Troubling macro-micro separations in the construction of discourses defining quality teaching and quality teachers, this article employs critical narrative analysis to consider ethical and moral dilemmas experienced by women of color who are required to complete educative Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) portfolios and receive passing scores in order to obtain early childhood teacher certification. Findings indicate that the counter-narratives of early childhood teachers of color collectively author edTPA as an obstacle to certification and higher pay, leading to mental health issues and stress and being antithetical to their own definitions of good teaching.

This article centers on a year-long study that followed 10 literacy teachers from their education preparation program into their classrooms, offering insights into the ways their beliefs toward linguistic diversity and equitable assessment were implemented in K–12 classrooms. By approaching this work through a lens of critical practice and linguistic and epistemic equity, this article demonstrates the need to explore the complex links between K–12 education settings and policies, and teacher preparation design and enactment.

by Keffrelyn Brown & Anthony Brown - 2019

by Lauren Anderson - 2019
This article draws on a racial capitalism lens to frame teacher education as a new “frontier” for privatization, to problematize teacher educators’ participation alongside entrepreneurs in disruptive innovation, and to consider the implications of such partnerships for public education and for the professions of teaching and teacher education.

by Mariana Souto-Manning & Jessica Martell - 2019
In this article, a university-based teacher educator of color and an early childhood teacher/teacher educator of color unveil the complex sociospatial dialectic of teacher education across settings. They share findings from a three-year collaborative study in which they worked to disrupt the traditional physical, pedagogical, and relational locations and boundaries of teacher education critically and collaboratively, intentionally working to interrupt how teacher education is implicated in the re-production and maintenance of racial injustices.

by Ilana Seidel Horn & Britnie Delinger Kane - 2019
In this analytic essay, Horn and Kane critique what they call the Professional Language Project—efforts to professionalize teaching through the infusion of technical terms alone. Using sociolinguistics and practice theory, they draw on studies of teachers’ workplace talk to question the premises of this work.

by Dorinda Carter Andrews, Tashal Brown, Bernadette Castillo, Davena Jackson & Vivek Vellanki - 2019
In this article, the authors theorize a humanizing pedagogy for teacher education and propose core tenets that represent an individual and collective effort toward critical consciousness for preservice teachers and also for teacher educators. A humanizing pedagogy in teacher education is a way forward for developing asset-, equity-, and social justice-oriented teachers.

by Manka Varghese, Julia Daniels & Caryn Park - 2019
This conceptual article examines how race-based caucuses in one university-based teacher education program attempt to shift candidates’ understandings of their racialized selves as related to their teacher identities, invoking the significance of emotions, emotion labor, and criticality.

by Thomas Philip - 2019
In this article, I develop the concept of principled improvisation: improvisation that is purposefully oriented toward justice and that accentuates each moment of teaching as political, ethical, and consequential. I describe the design of a learning environment for preservice teachers that was organized around principled improvisation and demonstrate its unique affordances for particular forms of novice teacher learning.

by Jamy Stillman & John Beltramo - 2019
This article reports on an ethnographic study that explored the development of asset-oriented teacher educators through their three-year participation in situated adaptations of two critical pedagogical approaches: Freirean culture circles and Boalian theatre. The article argues that these approaches offer special promise for facilitating teacher educators’ learning about the contingent and critical work of asset-oriented teacher education, and, in doing so, provide fertile ground for transforming the field.

by Jihyun Kim, Min Sun & Peter Youngs - 2019

by William Zahner, Suzanne Chapin, Rich Levine, Lingjun He & Robert Afonso - 2019

by Stuart Yeh - 2017
Evidence regarding the reliability and validity of value-added teacher rankings, evidence that National Board for Professional Teaching Standards teacher certification is a reliable measure, but a weak predictor, of gains in student performance, and evidence from a path analysis suggest reasons to question the prevailing view that the contribution of teachers to student performance is the largest factor influencing student achievement.

by Susan Yoon, Jessica Koehler Yom , Zhitong Yang & Lei Liu - 2017

by Nicole Louie - 2017
