Urban Teacher Residencies: Indicators of Successful Recruitment
David Marshall, Michael Scott
With the current teacher workforce in urban school districts diminishing in size, teacher preparation programs are being called to use creative ways to attract candidates to ensure that schools in urban districts keep their staff filled with highly qualified teachers. This article considers the factors for successful recruitment in an urban teacher residency program for a mid-sized city's urban school district. This study retroactively utilized selection data from four cohorts of residency applicants to determine which factors contributed the most to the program selection process. One such factor examined was the Haberman Star Teacher Pre-screener Inventory, a test that seeks to determine success based on attitudes toward teaching. The study found that candidate interviews and the teaching demonstration were the most instrumental in the selection process. The Haberman assessment showed a potential to be a reliable source of data, but the mixed findings suggest that more research is required.
