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 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

A humanizing pedagogy in teacher education is a way forward for developing asset-, equity-, and social justice-oriented teachers.

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.

  • Streaming videos showcasing the work of exemplary teachers
    With a shortage of teachers nationwide, but particularly in the New York City area, more and more educators are entering school this fall with little or no hands-on classroom experience. Over-crowded classes, pressure to “teach to tests,” and a more diversified student population will also put added stress on this new crop of teachers. Guidance in the form of professional development, via the Internet, is now available providing access to an archive of wisdom and best practices from some of the greatest teachers on the front lines. Teachers Network, with a grant from the AT&T Foundation, has developed a series of interactive streaming videos, which offers practical instruction for the novice teacher, and serves as a form of “digital mentoring.”
