Classrooms as Knowledge Building Communities

Urban Teacher Education Research Network

How do preservice teachers come to understand and enact powerful and culturally-relevant pedagogical practices? What role does the teacher education program play? We are working as part of a consortium of teacher educators across the nation to document how and to what extent preservice teachers develop the identities, knowledge and practices necessary to become effective urban educators.
