This paper pioneers a new method of training teachers to teach, following extensive research and observation of 18 teacher training programmes in 13 US states, and interviews with educational staff at all levels.

It identifies four 'building blocks' that are pivotal to the success of a teacher training programme - modeling, practice, feedback, and alignment - and demonstrates how these are informed by scientific learning principles with detailed explanations and guidance videos.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
