The Shared Vision and Practice of a University/School Partnership.
Anderson, Marla; Cole, David; Fischer, Fritz; Ingram, Chris
This paper describes the University of Northern Colorado's Secondary Professional Teacher Education Program (PTEP), which involves a partnership with seven local area high schools and places approximately 200 secondary teacher candidates each semester in these schools. The program brings together university faculty members from the Colleges of Education and Arts and Sciences and teachers from the high schools to relay the content, knowledge, and experiences that the preservice teachers need. The Secondary PTEP is a four-phase program that offers early and advanced field experiences, experiences with secondary curriculum content, and experiences with various secondary teaching strategies within partner school classrooms. Each phase of the program includes coursework, field experiences, and seminars taken concurrently. This paper provides details about the earliest phases of the program and content knowledge from the university perspective, then discusses the early phases and professional content from the school perspective. It explores the values of the program in the latter phases from the school perspective and from the university perspective, focusing on content, teaching methods, and field experiences. (SM)
