dc.description.abstract This project identifies what preservice teachers learn in urban secondary schools and situates their learning in the literature of teacher preparation and urban schools. Data from interview transcripts and student reflections over a four-year period are analyzed. The overarching theme highlighted personal and professional empowerment. Beneath that overarching theme, the narratives descriptions fell into the following categories: responsiveness to diverse learners; attitudinal shifts about diverse populations; planning and its relationship to classroom management; and the importance of relationships. The findings reveal how the preservice teachers empowered themselves and their students by taking proactive measures in the classroom by dismantling stereotypes and preconceived notions about students from diverse backgrounds and creating learning experiences conducive to meeting the needs of the students. en_US
