UPSTEP. An Occasional Paper.
Colorado Univ., Boulder. Undergraduate Pre-Service Teacher Education Program.
This document is the first in a series of occasional papers to be published by the Undergraduate Pre-Service Teacher Education Program (UPSTEP) at the University of Colorado (CU). The papers are intended to inform universities, public schools, and educational service agencies about noteworthy innovations in UPSTEP and to publish articles on educational issues of interest to anyone concerned with the education of prospective teachers. "Why Support UPSTEP?" by Donald McGuire of the National Science Foundation is the introductory article that points out the raison d' etre and major goals of the program. "The Margin of Freedom" by John Haas, codirector of CU UPSTEP, explains the motives, methods, and overarching design of this program, which is defined as a vehicle to encourage improved instruction in both liberal arts and teacher education. There are also two interviews with the deans of CU's arts and science department and education department who discuss the effect of UPSTEP on their departments. (Related documents are SP 006 876, 006 877, and 006 874.) (Editors/JA)
