Teachers College Record, v104 n2 p273-300 Mar 2002
Interviewed diverse beginning teachers in a variety of Massachusetts public schools regarding how they experienced curriculum and assessments in the face of standards-based reform. Respondents received little or no guidance about what to teach or how to teach it and struggled to prepare content and materials. The standards and accountability environment created a sense of urgency but no support. (SM)
