University/Public School Collaboration: A Comprehensive Model for Staff Development and School Improvement.
Boyd, Jim; And Others
The purpose of this paper is to describe the programs and outcomes of the efforts initiated by Tarleton State University (Texas) designed to support the public schools in their efforts to improve the teaching, learning, and quality of life in the public schools. The Tarleton Model for Accelerated Teacher Education is an accelerated teacher certification program which enables persons with a baccalaureate degree to earn a teaching certificate through a combination of university-based coursework and a paid internship under the joint sponsorship of collaborating school districts and the university. The Effective Schools Project is designed to assist public school districts with the implementation of effective schools practices. The Master Teacher Academy was implemented to help experienced teachers extend their skills to the level of a Master Teacher and to help rejuvenate the spirit of good teachers. The Trainer of Trainers Institute was developed to equip public school personnel with values and skills related to campus-based staff development. (IAH)
