New teachers need plenty of opportunities to practice their teaching skills, and they need specific, targeted feedback to help them improve.  The SREB Teacher Preparation Commission concluded that being sure teacher candidates experience high-quality clinical practice is the clearest implication of research in the field. Join us for a discussion on promising practices and the state’s role in policy.
