Interesting story that came out of Michigan via NPR, "Two Cities: Teacher Preparation." It asks a fundamental question, "Which programs best prepare new teachers for the classroom?" What are your thoughts? Did you feel "prepared" when you first entered the classroom? What program did you go through to teach? Pros/Cons of each? Looking back, what's the number one thing you feel is the most important thing to know when entering a classroom for the first time? And...how can we really start changing the way teachers are taught so they feel prepared for the classroom? Lots of questions..let's start some dialogue and see if we can't find some answers!
