This booklet describes eight University of Washington teacher education projects in operation during the 1969-70 school year to develop and test various performance-based, field-experience approaches and a management system in which the university and cooperating school districts provided for released time for selected school personnel to serve as mid-managers. The eight programs described are 1) the Federal Way Project, a 1-year, field-centered program to retrain junior high teachers; 2) the Garfield Program, a 1-year internship to recruit and prepare teachers for a Seattle high school; 3) the M-Step Program in which Seattle schools prehire 30 university sophomores who are in continuous school and community contact for seven consecutive quarters; 4) the Northshore Project, a performance-based, field-centered junior and senior year program to prepare elementary and secondary teachers; 5) the Renton Professional Work-Study Program based on a 2-year, half-time internship for juniors and seniors; 6) the Shoreline Project, a 1-year, individualized performance-based graduate intern program developed and implemented by local school personnel in consultation with the university to recruit and prepare teachers for a new middle school; 7) the Teacher Corps program, a graduate internship for elementary and junior high teachers; and 8) the Tri-University Project in Elementary Education, a 1-year preservice program operated entirely within the school setting.
