This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

Capstone Roundtable — The Hosts with the Most: The Importance of Host Teacher – Participant Relationships Breakout Session
Limited Capacity seats available

Aspiring teachers participating in the Urban Teacher preparation program each receive a host teacher. When structured interviews with alumni of the program on school climate yielded unprompted responses around the importance of the host teacher on their experience, it became necessary to learn more about the host teacher – participant relationship, including attempts to corroborate the data quantitatively and modifications to the host teacher survey to elicit additional information. This roundtable will include findings for improving the selection and training of host teachers in teacher preparation programs.
