Learning through Partnership: Four Narratives
Morgan-Fleming, Barbara; Simpson, Douglas J.; Curtis, Kristi; Hull, William
Teacher Education Quarterly, v37 n3 p63-79 Sum 2010
The partnership between Best Elementary School and Texas Tech University's College of Education has been in place over 15 years. During this time field based methods classes have been taught at Best, graduate and undergraduate students have been involved in tutoring programs, and activities such as field trips have been conducted in partnership between the two institutions. Best Elementary is a Title 1 school with a student population that is primarily minority (77.8% African American, 18.4% Hispanic) and economically disadvantaged (86.2%). It is also high achieving, receiving an Exemplary rating, the highest possible academic ranking for a school in the state of Texas. In this article, the authors explore the partnership with multiple narratives: two professors, one graduate student, and one first grade teacher. They also draw on previous publications in which Best students through their writing communicate with Tech students and other future teachers. (Contains 4 notes.)
