A Copartnership for Bilateral Change: The University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Center for Education Professions (CEP) and the Area Movement for Educationally New Dimensions (AMEND).
Wisconsin State Univ., La Crosse.
The Center for Education Professions (CEP) coordinated contacts between the University of Wisconsin's College of Education and the public and private schools of the La Crosse area. The synchronization was accomplished through the grouping of 23 multiunit area schools into a network called "Area Movement for Educationally New Dimensions" (AMEND). AMEND afforded bilateral change through mutual support programs. The AMEND schools were provided with facilitative services, in-service training programs, resource materials, public relations, and other maintenance assistance by CEP. AMEND schools also served as research laboratories for CEP personnel engaged in developing and field-testing materials for multiunit school curriculum. After one year, evaluation of this copartnership indicated that the program was functioning as intended. The organizational model has been established and as a result, roles and responsibilities in student teaching programs are being clarified. (The appendixes to the report include information on a) the program organization and constitution; b) implementation of resource materials; c) the roles of the supervisor, principal, and program unit leader; and d) the 1972-73 AMEND Plan of Action.)
