Piloting the Duquesne University Urban Teacher Education Program

 Working in collaboration with Dr. Munson, Dr. Levitt, and Dr. McCown, the Sizemore Professor and these colleagues will begin piloting the Duquesne University School of Education “Undergraduate Urban Teacher Education Program” in 2010, which is designed to build on Dr. Ball’s (2009) “Model of Generative Change.” Based on this model, we are planning to work collaboratively with Duquesne faculty, neighborhood schools, parents, students, and community based organizations to prepare a new generation of teachers who have the knowledge, dispositions and skills necessary to teach effectively in urban schools with a sense of efficacy.  Together, we are planning to train a generation of teachers who are excited about “Teaching to Change the World.”
