In Inspiring Teaching, leading teacher educator Sharon Feiman-Nemser and her colleagues investigate this âcontext-specificâ approach to teacher education. They draw on the Choosing to Teach study, a detailed multiyear investigation of three selective, mission-driven teacher preparation programsâthe Urban Teacher Education Program at the University of Chicago, the Alliance for Catholic Education at the University of Notre Dame, and the Day School Leadership through Teaching program at Brandeis Universityâthat traces each programâs impact on graduates during their first few years of teaching.
Feiman-Nemser and her colleagues show how teacher education programs like these can help teachers develop the understanding, commitment, tools, and strategies they need to teach in specific settings. By tracking the professional growth of teachers in these programs and documenting the challenges they encounter in their respective school sectors, the book explores and illustrates the ways in which these mission-driven programs select and prepare teachers for particular school environments.
