Emerging Concepts for Collaboration; Selected Papers. Bulletin No. 40.
James, Richard, Ed.; Brown, Ray, Ed.
This collection of articles deals with collaboration in teacher education. The first paper, "A Conceptual Basis for Collaboration," by Earl D. Clark, synthesizes the concepts and components of collaboration and prescribes the relationships needed between all involved if quality programs are to prevail. The second paper, "Parity and Educational Problem Solving: A Progress Report," by Suzanne M. Kinzer and William H. Drummond, outlines objectives and designs for the Florida Collaborative Model Project. This program attempted to achieve equal parity in collaborative educational policy-making between the following voices: (a) public school administration; (b) professional associations--classroom teachers; (c) university faculty; (d) students in teacher education; and (e) community or citizenry. The third paper, "Project Follow Through: Interdepartmental Collaboration," by Alex Molnar et al., describes the interrelationship between students, staff members of field centers, and university faculty as evidenced at a program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The fourth paper, "Collaboration in a CBTE Program," by Rita C. Richey, Fred S. Cook, and Robert A. Roth, presents Michigan's approach to initiating a competency-based teacher education (CBTE) program with emphasis on collaboration. The articles, while distinct in their approach to collaboration, are similar in perspective. (Author/JS)
