November 18, 2010 - TERI Partner Network Night: Focus on Elementary School Partnerships
On November 18th, 2010, the TERI Partner Network hosted events to get to know other potential Professional Development School partners. At the November 18th event, 95 attendees from nine metro-area districts and the University of Minnesota were hosted by Brooklyn Center High School. This evening was focused on developing strong partnerships in elementary schools, and particular attention was given the TERI element of co-teaching as a model for student-teaching. As scholars and practitioners of the co-teaching teaching model, several representatives from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud school district, Sartell school district, and Minnesota State University, Mankato joined us to share their expertise and experience. This panel shared their experience implementing co-teaching into the field experience for pre-service teachers. In addition to discussing co-teaching, metro area school partners also had the opportunity to network with University faculty in their same content areas and discuss ways that TERI can benefit their schools and professional communities.
