Waddell, Jennifer; Ukpokodu, Omiunota N.
Multicultural Education, v20 n1 p15-22 Fall 2012
This article explores a university's Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP) and its success not just in recruiting, preparing, retaining, and graduating its students, but in likewise leading to employment and retention as teachers in urban schools. It focuses on critical aspects of the program, including recruitment of diverse candidates, specifically for urban schools; collaborative partnerships; student support and mentorship; curriculum conceptualized for social justice and multicultural education; extended field experiences in urban schools and communities; and induction for program graduates. It also describes the program's context and its basic features, including the recruitment process and programmatic innovations, and offers an analysis of the assessment of the program's impact and sustainability.
