Wiggins, Robert A.; Follo, Eric J.
Journal of Teacher Education, v50 n2 p94-105 Mar-Apr 1999
Assessed Oakland University's elementary-teacher-preparation program to determine aspects of the program that most affected students' preparation to teach in diverse classrooms. Pre- and post-semester surveys of student teachers placed in urban/suburban schools indicated that students learned adequate skills for teaching diverse students, but their attitudes or beliefs about teaching in such settings were not adequately affected.
