TeachingWorks continues to partner with the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) to develop a thematic strand for the AACTE annual meeting.

The 2019 American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) Annual Meeting will take place February 22-24, 2019 in Lousiville, Kentucky. In this year’s AACTE Preparing Teachers for Practice strand, we will continue our close focus on teaching practice that advances equity and justice. This year, building on the work we have done together in the seminar series over the past few years, we investigate the relationship between the special nature of knowing content in teaching and the work of seeing and hearing children’s ideas with subject matter and supporting their growth.  We seek to uncover and articulate the relationship between advancing justice and the teaching of content. We have structured this year’s strand to afford us significant opportunities to investigate how we might take up these issues in English language arts, in mathematics, social studies, and science.  We will ask our seminar speakers to speak to these questions, and to share the ways that they work with their candidates to build their capacity to interact with students around content in ways that disrupt persistent patterns of oppression.

Information on sessions and events associated with the 2019 strand can be found here. For more detailed information on the Annual Meeting, visit www.aacte.org. If you are interested in participating in the strand, please email info@teachingworks.org
