Do Schools of Education Teach the Fundamentals of Instruction?

Grant Year: 2015

Kate Walsh will lead an effort to explore the extent to which schools of education are providing future teachers with the pedagogical skills they need to become effective classroom instructors. The project will survey the curricula and reading materials used in more than 40 schools of education in order to assess whether these schools are providing their students with training in several key elements of instruction that researchers have found contribute to effective teaching. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
