The purpose of this study was to gain a preliminary understanding of how literacy teacher educators in the United States view classroom teacher preparedness for literacy instruction. A cross-sectional survey was developed using the most recent version of professional preparation standards and components for classroom teachers released by the International Literacy Association. Quantitative data were collected among 205 respondents and analyzed using descriptive statistics. Findings for respondents’ views were reported by grade-level band (i.e., preK/primary, elementary/intermediate, middle/high school), which revealed three overarching trends. A discussion of trends was provided, along with implications for literacy teacher education and future research areas.
