Teachers-in-Residence: New Pathways into the Profession. Ask the Team
Han, Grace; Doyle, Daniela
Center on Great Teachers and Leaders
Teacher residency programs are a relatively new method for building stronger teacher pipelines. Research assessing the impact of these programs is still limited, but some early reports suggest that residency programs hold promise for improving teacher effectiveness and retention rates (Barrett, Hovde, Hahn, & Rosqueta, 2011; Papay, West, Fullerton, & Kane, 2011). Lacking comprehensive information on program performance, the authors used quality benchmarks established by experts in the field to identify 14 teacher residency programs for review. Districts or nonprofit organizations administer 10 of the programs, and universities administer the remaining four programs. Based on their review of these programs, the authors offer considerations and examples to states and districts that are interested in establishing a high-quality teacher residency program.
