Agenda for Researching Teaching (ART): A Visual Model and Research Questions

Document Type


Publication Date



In response to the dearth of research agendas that connect teacher education and teaching in the field and to the call for more programmatic research, the purpose of this paper is to present the Agenda for Researching Teaching (ART). The ART is a visual research agenda that spans the time from a teacher candidate learning to teach to impacting student achievement as a teacher. Furthermore, we include research questions based on the extant literature for researching teachers and teacher education. It is hoped that the model will assist researchers who investigate teachers, teacher education programs, and so forth, to focus their work in order to move forward teacher education pipelines, programs, and professional development opportunities.
