The MESTEP Record: A Report on the First Six Years. Math English Science Technology Education Project.
Clark, Richard J.; And Others
The Math English Science Technology Education Project (MESTEP) was established to recruit, select, prepare, support, and retain in teaching diverse and talented recent college graduates with strong academic majors in math, English, or a science. A collaborative partnership of the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), public schools, and private industry, MESTEP is a 15-month Master of Education program comprised of 3.5 weeks of intensive education course work at the University of Massachusetts followed by student teaching in a high school summer session in conjunction with mentors and university supervisors. Completion of the first summer prepares the students to move into a teaching or an industry internship. During the first 3 years of teaching, participating companies are committed to attempt to hire MESTEP graduates for summer employment. Much of the document consists of lists of names of participants, including information on their school and employment, and lists of names of directors and others involved in the program. (JD)
