Redesigning Special Education Teacher Preparation describes both challenges and possible solutions to redesigning and restructuring high-incidence teacher preparation programs so graduates will meet the Highly Qualified Teacher requirements and be prepared to teach students with high-incidence disabilities. This powerful new text discusses many possible reforms, including field-based teacher preparation, a focus on evidence-based core practices and teacher moves, collaboration with K-12 school-based partners as teacher educators, interdisciplinary collaboration across university faculty, and a grounding in current expectations for high-stakes accountability and program evaluation.

The professional community in teacher preparation is papered with reports, manifestos, and standards urging redesign of programs to align with research. Finally, we have a best-practice guide to pilot our work. Goeke and colleagues have gone out of their way to anticipate obstacles and highlight sustainability as we move toward implementing innovation.
