The Alternative Teacher Education Program (ATEP) at Kent State University features the selection of academically able students, an inter-institutional planning council, the matching of a master teacher with a preservice teacher for a 2-year period, an individualized course of study jointly designed by the faculty advisor and student, and the replacement of pre-professional teacher education coursework with a series of inquiry-oriented seminars. This practice profile describes the student, faculty, school district and program characteristics, and also implementation requirements.
