The following research project details the work of three faculty members who worked collaboratively on program improvement. After seeing and hearing anecdotal evidence of graduates' success in the classroom, the researchers sought to formalize this information by surveying recent graduates and interviewing principals of elementary schools in which these beginning teachers worked. Using the Danielson's Framework for Teaching as adapted for Kentucky (Kentucky Framework for Teaching) as a frame for analyses, the authors mapped survey and interview data to determine perceived areas of strength and growth of the beginning teachers then determined content and experiences that could be added or amended in the elementary teacher preparation program.
