The Summer Experiences of Two Model School/University Teacher Education Partnerships.
Fischetti, John; And Others
Secondary summer schools for student remediation and enrichment linked with university teacher education programs provide opportunities for rethinking and restructuring student teaching and staff development programs. Based on the experiences of two model programs, this paper centers on the collaborative planning and initiation of intensive teacher education prepracticum courses, clinical site student teaching environments, and follow-up courses held during a second summer following an academic year of intensive teaching. The joint recruitment and selection process, critical to both programs' success, is highlighted. Following summaries of both programs, discussion focuses on: (1) the opportunities and limitations of the summer portion of both programs; (2) roles that university faculty, teachers, and administrators played in summer teaching and coursework; (3) the importance of the cohort and teamed student teaching; (4) the joint planning processes required to initiate and maintain the programs; (5) the use of a second summer for students; and (6) implications for teacher educators of the summer school linkages.
