New and forthcoming publications from CCNY faculty.
As it celebrates its centennial, The City College of New York’s School of Education (SOE) welcomes a timely tome co-written by one of its experts, Megan Blumenreich, on how the nation can attract, prepare, and retain high-quality teachers for all students. “Schooling Teachers: Teach For America and the Future of Teacher Education” rolls off the Teachers College Press this spring.
The book draws on participant voices from the inaugural 1990 cohort of Teach For America. It situates their experiences within the larger context of teacher education and reform of the last three decades.
“Schooling Teachers” is the second recent publication by a City College education professor. “Imagining Motherhood in the Twenty-First Century,” co-edited by Gay Wilgus, associate professor, was published in November.
