Piloting Professional Year Partnerships.
Uphoff, James K.; And Others
"Partners Transforming Education: School-University-Community" is a process model being implemented by the College of Education and Human Services of Wright State University (Ohio) to plan and articulate the simultaneous renewal of the education of educators and the prekindergarten-grade 12 (PreK-12) sector. The model has involved over 430 representatives of education, business, human service agencies, and the military in providing input on changes needed to create a culture of collaborative educators responsive to society's needs. The College of Education has invited the PreK-12 sector, the university at large, and the community to work collaboratively in building a program that will prepare more qualified preservice teachers and renew education faculties and administrators. The project involves newly designed teacher education curricula, a newly conceptualized post-baccalaureate professional school model, and partnership school sites. At one participating school, Shilohview Elementary School (near Dayton, Ohio), 19 teachers completed a one-credit graduate-level workshop about the process of "simultaneous renewal" and field experiences were provided for undergraduate teacher interns. The project was evaluated by analyzing reactions of teacher interns, a survey of teachers, a focus group interview with teachers, and assessment of interns' achievements. The project was viewed as benefiting all learners from prekindergarten through teacher preparation. (JDD)
