This paper reviews changes in an elementary teacher education program based on several studies regarding the content of the program. The nature of each study and its implementation in the program are described. Three changes have been made in the program as a result of the studies: student teachers are required to complete a junior year practicum in a public housing project; the reading and language arts methods sequence was revised with an on-site teaching course in a low-income school that addresses issues about teaching literacy; and revised pre-teaching courses have been integrated into an urban school system. Results of these studies have indicated that much remains to be done in preparing novice teachers to respect, appreciate, and teach diverse children well. (JPB)
