In partnership with Detroit Public Television, REL Midwest created a 30-minute, documentary-style public television program that covers evidence-based best practices for new teacher preparation and support. Specifically, the program features three novice teachers in Metro Detroit whose experiences highlight the importance of quality preparation, clinical experience, and ongoing mentorship. Also featured in the program are veteran teachers, school leaders, researchers, and leaders from teacher preparation programs and the Michigan Department of Education. At the in-person screening, REL Midwest previewed the upcoming broadcast for attendees and hosted a facilitated discussion with attendees and individuals featured in the program.
