Designing Endorsement Practicums with Depth, Differentiation and District Needs in Mind
Renee Mattson, Xavier University
Kathy Winterman, Xavier University
Teaching Candidates looking to increase their understanding of best practices in education often come back to the university setting looking for ways to gain knowledge and experiences in best practices especially when working on obtaining a specialized endorsement. These educators have already done a student teaching their first go-around, and with their endorsement studies they are looking for practicums that put them into leadership roles within their school district. At Xavier we have begun to offer more than one option for the final practicum for Special Education Endorsements so that students who are ready for more than traditional teaching are able to take on Gifted or TTW coordinator responsibilities as well.

Raven Cromwell, Marietta College

This presentation will focus on practical, hands on activities and games designed to increase students social awareness, self-awareness, self-management, problem solving, and relationship skills.
*University and School Partnerships: A Systemic Approach to Teacher Preparation
Kristine Still, Cleveland State University
Glenda Toneff Cotner, Cleveland State University
Richard Wakefield, Cleveland State University
Presenters will discuss the design and implementation process used in the clinically based teacher preparation model at Cleveland State University, specifically, the development of a “grow-your-own” model cultivated through a partnership between a local urban school district and an urban university, both of which are situated in a high-poverty city in the Midwest. Qualitative data from student focus groups shows evidence that teacher candidates are gaining a greater understanding of urban education, families and communities.
*Strengthening P-12 Partnerships with Focus Group Needs Assessments
Joseph Hall, Wilmington College
Jane Bogan, Wilmington College
This presentation aligns with the general theme of the Conference because focus group needs assessments are being conducted within site schools where teacher candidates are placed for field practica. It is hoped that these focus groups will enable the college strengthen its P-12 clinical partnerships and enhance the quality of the clinical practice for the teacher candidates. Accordingly, this session also aligns with the field and clinical work strand, as we will be sharing an example of collaboration with/among our P-12 school partners.
