Keeping the Whole Village Together: Sharing Responsibility for the Learning of All Students.
Pacheco, Arturo; Brady, Tom; Blake, Sally; Della-Piana, Connie Kubo
This paper explains that to educate all students is the shared responsibility of partnerships within higher education and between higher education and the schools. The Partnership for Excellence in Teacher Education (PETE) incorporates this "whole village" approach into the design and implementation of school-based science and mathematics teacher education. It is guided by systematic renewal efforts in El Paso, Texas, and maintains a partnership linking the College of Education, the College of Science, the public schools, and parents and communities. Teams of mathematics, physics, and education faculty integrate activities and curriculum into local public schools. University classes are taught in public schools, with preservice teachers going into classrooms to teach content and practice pedagogy. College faculty observe student teachers' teaching performance and provide feedback. Student teachers keep reflective analysis logs. The integrated team-taught field model assumes that the program will increase students' mathematics and science content knowledge, pedagogical skills, and level of teaching performance and will change preservice teachers' negative perceptions toward mathematics and science learning and teaching. This paper describes how the mathematics and science blocks incorporate the "whole village" approach and work to change student's attitudes. (SM)
