Teaching and Teacher Education: Absence and Presence in AERA Presidential Addresses


"This essay considers the absence, presence, and shifting treatment of the topic of research on teaching and teacher education in AERA presidential addresses. To capture the arc of this topic, the essay is structured chronologically according to three time periods beginning with AERAs birth in 1916 and continuing to the current years. At a general level, treatment of teaching and teacher education as a topic mirrored the contours of the emergence and historical development of the field of research on teaching and teacher education. However, the essay also acknowledges that presidential addresses are a partial lens on the field, which leaves out many significant developments, including issues and perspectives that have existed on the margins of the field."
