Sharing a Vision Toward a National Definition of Teacher Residencies
Over the past several years, teacher residency programs have shown immense promise meeting the needs of future teachers and students across the country. However, with the range of different features offered by these programs, an exact definition of teacher residencies has been difficult to identify.
Under the umbrella of the Pathways Alliance, Prepared to Teach collaborated with NCTR and a working group to gather perspectives and create a nationally vetted residency definition. The definition includes discussions of four important teacher residency components: partnerships, curriculum, resident experiences, and mentor teachers.
Join Pathways Alliance on August 11 at 1:00 p.m.ET for a webinar discussing a path forward for a national definition of Teacher Residency programs. Register today.
