Portal Schools. Final Report.
Lutonsky, Linda, Ed.
The Portal School concept envisions a group of schools established in school systems that work closely with a university and that desire to participate in teacher education. This monograph represents a collection of experiences shared by initial developers of the Portal School strategy -- Florida State University, the University of Georgia, and Temple University -- and Teacher Corps projects in Buffalo, New York; Pueblo, Colorado; and Atlanta, Georgia that have utilized the Portal School strategy. The Portal School strategy brings separate educational institutions together into a working relationship to provide reality-based and field-centered teacher education and improved learning opportunities for children. The strategy has emerged from two different conceptual sources--the competency-based teacher education models projects and the Temple-University-Philadelphia plan. The monograph serves as a final project report and is intended to provide alternative interpretations of how the Portal School strategy can be used to meet local needs.
