Abstract: Many teacher preparation programs do not provide sufficient opportunities to practice teaching or see models of good teaching. Emerging research on classroom simulations suggests that this may be a helpful training tool to improve teaching skills and translate research into practice. This quantitative, two-group experimental study examined a mixed-reality classroom simulation (TLE TeachLivETM) to train preservice teachers (N = 22) to use evidence-based comprehension practices. Researchers examined differences in knowledge, practice, and perceptions of preservice teachers after (a) teaching in a simulation versus (b) observing a peer teach in a simulation. Preservice teachers use and knowledge of evidence-based comprehension practices significantly improved after experience in the simulation.
