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