East Longmeadow/University of Massachusetts Professional Development School Project.
Seidman, I. E.; And Others
The East Longmeadow/University of Massachusetts Professional Development School project is a school district/university collaborative for teacher preparation. A goal of the program is to bridge the gap between a university-based school of education and public schools in preparing new teachers. To accomplish this goal the collaborative has developed a clinical site as part of a high school/middle school teacher education program. The basic components of the program are: (1) placement of a cohort of student teachers at the professional development school (PDS) site; (2) developing a community of mentors; (3) on-site instruction for the student teachers and the mentor teachers; (4) planning, assessment, and training workshops; (5) exchange of faculty resources; (6) professional development projects; and (7) dissemination of knowledge gained from activities of the project, including assisting other higher education institutions to develop PDS projects.
