The University of California Cooperative Teacher Preparation Project (UCCTPP) began in 1971 as an effort to improve the quality and effectiveness of teacher education programs. UCCTPP is currently implemented through the cooperative efforts of the School of Education at the University of California at Berkeley and the Mount Diablo and Vallejo Unified School Districts. The project is designed to manage a much larger portion of the beginning teacher's experience than has heretofore been attempted. The project functions within an educational framework comprised of three themes: the learner, subject areas, and instruction. Instructional, administrative, and research models consistent with the themes are designed to: (a) improve the quality of teaching at all levels through self-assessment techniques, (b) establish administrative organizations and procedures that open up fresh possibilities for making educational decisions, (c) research the effectiveness of the project and its teachers, and (d) study basic research questions related to the teaching-learning process. Holistically, the UCCTPP is a longitudinal, unified K-12, preservice/inservice model committed to educational innovation and change, with a responsibility for providing evidence of this activity.
