The "U" in UTEP: Development of the Urban Curriculum and Its Delivery. Second Year Report to the Indiana Department of Education, Teacher Training and Licensing Advisory Committee.
Sandoval, Pamela A.
This report provides an outline of the Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP), describes curriculum development and delivery, and discusses the progress that has been made toward program goals. UTEP is a school district/university consortium for school-based professional preparation and development. Members of the consortium include: Indiana University Northwest, East Chicago Public Schools, East Chicago Federation of Teachers, Gary Community School Corporation, Gary Teachers Union, School City of Hammond, and the Hammond Teachers Federation. UTEP seeks to provide relevant urban education and experience for preservice teachers and to increase the professional development of teacher instructors--skilled master teachers--at the schools that serve as professional development centers (PDC). Field experiences for preservice teachers take place at either the elementary, middle, or high school professional development center. UTEP includes a graduate inservice teacher certification component--an alternative teacher certification program. The report details the evaluation plan and research design for the program and the appendices include protocols used in interviews with university faculty and PDC teacher instructors, as well as a survey instrument that collects information from faculty and teacher instructors on their instructional objectives and assessment methods. The appendices also include a list of 21 publication, papers, and presentations related to UTEP. (Contains 52 references.) (IAH)
