Working Together toward Excellence in Teacher Education.
King, Irvin L.; And Others
The overall goal of the Working Together towards Excellence in Teacher Education (WTTETE) program is to improve the quality of field-based experiences of teacher education students by improving the supervisory skills of the college and school professionals who supervise and coordinate those experiences. The program is a joint project of the Hawaii State Department of Education and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. WTTETE has four major goals: (1) to provide professional improvement opportunities for cooperating teachers (CTs) and observation/participation teachers (OPTs); (2) to recruit and retain qualified CTs and OPTs; (3) to provide professional development opportunities for the college coordinators; and (4) to develop long-range plans and management strategies that will facilitate successful implementation of program goals and objectives. Seventeen specific objectives have been derived from the four primary goals. The objectives include developing partnership schools, supporting faculty research, obtaining state funding, offering supervision courses and workshops, and obtaining stipends for participating teachers. Three underlying strategies have contributed to the program's success: (1) a management and evaluation system that requires active participation by faculty in development and assessment of goals and objectives; (2) a broad coalition of supporters; and (3) dedication to quality. Appendices include a course outline for the student teaching supervision course and statistical evaluation data. (IAH)
