Urban Teacher Training Collaborative – Tufts University

Check out this innovative new program out of Tufts University in Medford, MA. Partnering with three small Boston Public Schools, this program utilizes the “residency” model and a distinct focus on understanding communities AND curriculum as equal parts of an effective teacher.

View a student made short film on the program.  The film interviews teachers of color in the program and examines the ways race and ethnicity intersect with educational outcomes for their students.
