A Summons for Teacher Educators! Get off the Campus and into the Community!
Teacher education professors need to intensify their searches for cooperative ventures between their campuses and community schools. It is crucial for teacher education students to be initiated into school day realities during their early semesters. This paper describes seven outreach efforts at St. Norbert College (Wisconsin) designed to increase school and college cooperation. These efforts show that not only does good theory inform good practice, but that good practice informs theory. The activities are: (1) early immersion programs; (2) professional growth experience seminars for cooperating teachers; (3) off-campus content immersions; (4) community outreach summer programs; (5) mock interview relays; (6) student teaching seminar experiments; and (7) cooperating teacher excellence recognitions. Each of the outreach activities represents an attempt to encourage teacher education professors into alternative adventures. (SM)
