School-University Partnerships. Perspectives: Center for Excellence in Education, Monograph Series No. 4.
Lapan, Stephen D., Ed; Minner, Sam, Ed.
This monograph features four papers that highlight school-based teacher training programs through Northern Arizona University's (NAU) Center for Excellence in Education (CEE). The first paper, "Reflection, Research, and Practice in a School-based Teacher Education Program (Peggy Ver Velde, Sherry L. Markel, Jeanne Dustman, Barbara Campbell, and Mary Knight), outlines the history, operation, and evaluation of the pioneer CEE school-university teacher training program, Flagstaff Partnerships Program. This K-6 effort emphasized curriculum integration translated into lessons taught by college students as they progressed toward student teaching. The second paper, "An Elementary School-based Partnership: The Mentorship Component" (Pat Wall, Emilie Rodger, Martha Brady, and MaryAnn Davies), describes the NAU/Sedona Partnership Program, a K-8 teacher preparation partnership involving CEE and the Sedona, Arizona Unified School District, focusing on the program's mentorship aspect. The third paper, "Integrated Secondary Teacher Education Program: On the Edge of Partnership" (Daniel L. Kain, Michael Tanner, and Peggy Raines), describes a secondary partnership program developed because NAU had exemplary innovative elementary school-based teacher preparation but very little innovative secondary preparation. The fourth paper, "Preparing Special Education Teachers for Rural Areas: The Rural Special Education Project" (Greg Prater, Susan Miller, and Sam Minner), describes a partnership on a Navajo reservation whose primary goal was to increase the number of qualified educators to teach Native American children in rural and reservation areas.
