9780131750418: Alternate Routes to Teaching

This book was written for Alternate Certification program administrators by THE foremost experts on Alternate Route Certification for Teachers. 

For the first time, there is a book that brings together a broad picture of alternate routes — pathways to teaching that appeal to those from many walks of life who want to teach. This timely book was written by a leader in Alternate Routes to Teacher Certification and answers the questions:

  • What are alternate routes to teaching and how did they develop?
  • How did new national programs and federal involvement promote alternate route participation?
  • What makes up State Alternate Routes to Teacher Certification and how are they implemented?
  • Who are Alternate Route Teachers?
  • What does the research say about Alternate Routes and where will Alternate Routes go from here?

“As the author demonstrates, these alternate route programs are a large and growing part of the K-12 education landscape. Feistritzer is the national expert on the subject, and clearly the person to write a book on the topic.”

Michael Podgursky, Ph.D.

University of Missouri

 

“[This] text is well-written and contains an outstanding presentation of the history and nature of alternate routes to certification, as well as the best data available on the results those programs have generated. The book will appeal to public school and college educators, government policy makers, persons considering teaching careers, and anyone who is concerned about and interested in public schools.”

 Leo Klagholz, Ph.D., former New Jersey Commissioner of Education
