This exploratory study represents an analysis of 15 exit portfolios of students enrolled in a program to prepare teachers for urban schools. Portfolios were analyzed holistically across entries to determine the degree to which students integrated multiple concepts related to teaching in urban schools, including: asset/deficit perspectives, connections with families, social justice, high expectations for student learning, and contextualized teaching and learning. The portfolios fell into three groups along a continuum from limited practice to inconsistent practice to principled practice. The data are interpreted in relationship to faculty development and scaffolding preservice students as aspiring teachers for urban schools. (Contains 1 table.)
