Second-Year Progress Report. University-School Teacher Education Partnerships.
Edelfelt, Roy, Ed.
This monograph presents second-year progress reports on the University-School Teacher Education Partnerships underway at 15 locations across North Carolina. Each report presents 1998-99 highlights, an overview of the partnership, second-year goals, key components, implementation strategies, outcomes, lessons learned, and future directions. Overall, the structures of governance have been established and refined in all partnerships, even if not to everyone's satisfaction. Partnerships have generally emphasized improving and extending clinical experiences. Action research and experimentation are prominent in the partnerships. Several partnerships have given major attention to recruitment and selection of candidates for teaching, especially minorities. Programs to support the induction of beginning teachers are underway in several partnerships. The involvement of arts and science faculty in partnerships has been slow to develop, because of tradition and the absence of policy and resources to delegate teacher education responsibilities to arts and sciences professors. Most partnership activity is in elementary schools. Innovation in curriculum and instruction is less prevalent in partnership schools than in schools of education. Measurement of results has begun in six areas (e.g., partnerships as a total operation, teachers prepared in partnerships, and student learning in partnership schools). (SM)
