Tarleton Model for Accelerated Teacher Education (TMATE). A Collaborative Approach.
Littleton, Mark; And Others
The Tarleton Model for Accelerated Teacher Education (TMATE) is a collaborative teacher education program between Tarleton State University and public school districts in Texas. The program was designed to expedite the certification of persons already holding a bachelor's degree. Summer school at the university--including 3 weeks of teaching in the university's lab school--is followed by a year of internship jointly supervised by the university and cooperating school district. This paper presents detailed information on the philosophy, history, goals, entry requirements, and design of the program, as well as an outline of the required university coursework and course content for elementary and secondary teachers, exit requirements, certification requirements, mentor training, and the TMATE financial design.
