Many novice teachers lack the knowledge and skills to teach to new, challenging standards such as the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. This literature review synthesizes research-based knowledge about effective preparation, with a specific focus on clinical practice. We share what research points to in terms of high-quality clinical preparation and recommend a more productive path for future teacher preparation research.
