Teaching Core Practices in Teacher Education advocates an approach to practice-based teacher education that identifies "core practices" of teaching and supports novice teachers in learning how to enact them competently. Pam Grossman and her contributors argue that teacher education needs to do more to help teachers master these professional skills. The book draws on the work of a consortium of teacher educators from thirteen universities devoted to helping teachers develop core practices in support of ambitious and equitable instruction.

"Pam Grossman and her colleagues invite all involved in the preparation of teachers to think about their work in very different ways. Their thesis is simple but also profound: the design, development, and improvement of core teaching practices are key to how the whole field of teacher education improves. Their message is powerful; working in this radically different way, we can achieve much more for many more than ever before."
--Anthony S. Bryk, president, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

"Grossman provides an indispensible guide to practice-based teacher education with clear explanations and examples from innovative programs across the United States. This book is a must-read for contemporary teacher educators that offers elegant theory and common-sense examples."
--Heather C. Hill, Jerome T. Murphy Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
