Meeting the Nine Essentials: Winthrop University-School Partnership Network
Johnson, Lisa E.; Rakestraw, Jennie
School-University Partnerships, v7 n1 p6-16 2014
Johnson and Rakestraw describe the Winthrop University-School Partnership Network (WUSP) as a dynamic, diverse, and growing group of participants from nine school districts, thirty schools, multiple university programs, and community organizations. As a Network, they are working to emulate John Goodlad's (1984) vision "in order to improve schools and the work of teachers, a relationship had to exist between institutes of public education and teacher preparation programs," thus having shared responsibility for student achievement through teacher preparation and professional learning. These authors state that their work is a model of how to not just blur, but to remove the lines between university and school for the purpose of supporting learners. They address the ''Nine Essentials'' of the National Association for Professional Development Schools and the improvements they have seen in student learning through the dedication and innovation of collaborative partnerships.
