Providing an Urban Field Experience for Students Attending a Rural Teacher Preparation Institution.
Epps, M. Virginia; Ganser, Tom
This paper provides a sketch of a preservice teacher education field experience in schools serving ethnically and racially diverse populations. Since the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is situated in a rural setting with a predominantly white population, accessing schools serving ethnically and racially diverse populations poses significant problems. Through collaboration with the racially and ethnically diverse Milwaukee Public Schools, 684 students have been placed in urban classrooms. This field experience is one part of a 9-hour pre-professional block taken by students desiring entry into a professional education program. The sketch of this collaborative program includes information on the program's purposes, structure, demographics, logistics, results, problems, and approaches to problem solving. Appendices contain teacher education program approval rules and appeal procedure, pre-professional block field observation and participation experience data, and a cooperating teacher evaluation form.
