Building Effective Teacher Residencies examines the characteristics of two highly successful teacher residency programs in UTRU’s Network—the Aspire Teacher Residency and the Denver Teacher Residency.  Both programs participated in UTRU’s technical assistance programming in order to launch their residencies.
