Competing Views of Teaching in a School-University Partnership
Bartholomew, Samantha Scribner; Sandholtz, Judith Haymore
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v25 n1 p155-165 Jan 2009
This case study examines how differing views on the teacher's role in school reform affected the work of a school-university partnership. The school district and the university had a history of partnerships and shared common general goals. Yet, as the partnership progressed, conflicting perspectives about teaching and the purpose of professional development became evident and created dilemmas that influenced the nature of the work. We provide background information about each partner, describe the two views, and examine how the differing perspectives influenced the goals and activities of the partnership. This study highlights the complex issues embedded in school-university collaboration.
