Literacy and Teacher Education in Transition: Challenges and Possibilities

Timothy Blair, Vicky Zygouris-Coe.

In this session, we will present a synthesis of literacy issues, national and state mandates in literacy education, and how teacher education is changing. In addition, we will share a summary of research on: teacher preparation and we will discuss implications of current changes and demands for teacher education programs. Emphasis will be placed on standards-based and performance-based education, on scientifically based research in reading, on policy-and practice, and on what teachers need to know and be able to do to meet K-12 students' diverse needs.
