Waddell, Jennifer; Edwards, Linda; Underwood, Edward
Metropolitan Universities, v19 n4 p50-56 2008
The School of Education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City is addressing the urban teacher retention challenge through its Institute for Urban Education (IUE). IUE focuses on recruiting individuals from underrepresented populations who have a commitment to their urban communities. Its curriculum is distinguished by five features: (1) an emphasis on math, science, and literacy; (2) a focus on social justice, multicultural education, and culturally-responsive pedagogy; (3) summer, community-based experiences; (4) classes taught in urban school classrooms; and (5) new-teacher mentoring induction.
