Developing Teachers adds a totally new level of specificity to the understanding of fifth year programs as a solid entrance into the teaching profession. The special feature of the programs at many of these universities are compelling innovations that other universities will want to copy. The book is a guide for outstanding students who want to enter such programs, a rough template for other universities who want to construct such a program, and a careful analysis of the field for scholars and other persons interested in some of the best efforts in teacher education.
