TeachingWorks/AACTE Preparing Teachers for Practice Theme Strand

The 2018 American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) Annual Meeting was March 1-3, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland. In this year’s AACTE Preparing Teachers for Practice strand, and focused on teaching practice that advances equity and justice.  We seek to articulate and extend how we as teacher educators work with our candidates to ensure that they are equipped not only to enact equitable practice but also to disrupt patterns of inequity in our classrooms. We are asking our presenters to bring their perspectives to bear on this theme by selecting one high-leverage practice of teaching from the TeachingWorks list. Each speaker investigated and illuminated the enactment of that particular practice of teaching, and expose the nuanced ways in which issues of equity and inclusion are fundamental to just practice. Further, our speakers will sketch the ways in which these practices are powerful levers for disrupting persistent patterns of inequality that exclude children and disenfranchise students in schools.
