29 p. 

The Office of Educational Research and Improvement funded nine projects exploring whether partnerships could help improve teacher education and induction. It created consortia of state education agencies, state agencies of higher education, teacher education colleges, and local school districts to collaborate on improving teacher education and induction. Projects identified lessons learned regarding impact, models of teacher education, arts and science faculty engagement, teacher education curriculum, clinical experiences, standards, recruitment, retention, and professional development. Respondents considered experiential learning invaluable for student teachers. They considered the post-baccalaureate effective, also noting the effectiveness of an undergraduate minor in education and programs that deliberately linked undergraduate study to community and classroom experience in graduate license preparation. They had difficulty engaging arts and sciences faculty. Change in teacher education programs did not occur rapidly, and statewide partnerships were most successful in strategies to modify curriculum. Student cohorts, early exposure to the classroom, Professional Development School experiences, and careful preparation of mentors and cooperating teachers contributed to more successful teachers. Projects spanned the spectrum of standards, focusing on content standards. Personal attention by faculty contributed to successful student recruitment and retention. More sophisticated, customized approaches to induction and professional development addressed barriers to teacher retention. (Contains 70 references.) (SM)
