The Art of Juggling: Preparing Preservice Teachers for Urban Schools.
Tredway, Lynda
Journal of Negro Education, v68 n3 p382-96 Sum 1999
Describes a university-school partnership that prepares preservice teachers for, and in the context of, urban teaching. Delineates its philosophical foundations, candidate selection criteria, and program. Details the program's intentionally constructivist emphasis, which is aimed at developing strong urban teachers who are "expert jugglers," demonstrate effective practice, resist burnout, and dramatically influence students' achievement while contributing to educational reform.
