Developing the Whole Teacher to Educate the Whole Child 


The Center for Reaching & Teaching the Whole Child (CRTWC)’s report, Developing the Whole Teacher to Educate the Whole Child, documents the impact of a yearlong intervention to facilitate change within five teacher preparation programs.  

This initiative aims to build new knowledge about what factors support change or inhibit change in pre-service teacher programs, both generally, and specific to the integration of the social, emotional, and cultural dimensions of teaching and learning.  This framework places individuals at the center of teaching and learning, and prompts teachers to ask different questions, gather different data, and therefore, take different courses of action based on their understanding of who their students are and what they bring to the classroom.
