Abstract

As stated in the Turning Points 2000, Educating Adolescents for the 21 '1 Century, the entirety of a teachers career should be a seamless continuum of learning and development focused on student learning. Critical steps along the continuum include high-quality pre-service teacher preparation, carefully designed mentoring and induction programs. This statement only reinforces what we have been doing in a partnership between Eastern Washington University and Shaw Middle School for the past seven years. The program provides a year long experience in one school for pre-service teachers. This enables the pre-service teachers to increase their understanding of the school, its students and culture. The University provides a supervisor to work with the mentor teacher/teachers and intern to develop a seamless program from the beginning practicum level through student teaching. It is a partnership that works!
