Description:

"Powerful Teacher Education" describes the strategies, goals, content, and processes of seven highly successful and long-standing teacher education programs - Alverno College, Bank Street College, Trinity University, University of California, Berkeley, University of Southern Maine, University of Virginia, and Wheelock College. All these colleges and universities have succeeded in preparing teachers to teach diverse learners to achieve high levels of performance and understanding. In discussing the common features of these programs, Linda Darling-Hammond shows what outstanding teacher education models do and how they do it, and what their graduates accomplish as a result. "Powerful Teacher Education" also examines the policies, organizational features, resources, and relationships that have enabled these programs to succeed.

She has also served as faculty sponsor for the Stanford Teacher Education Program.
