The presenters, university instructor and kindergarten teacher, will describe their experiences in a university-school partnership that involves a yearlong clinical residency. The scholar-practitioners in this study were brought into a collaborative student-teaching residency program through a grant that established district partnerships with an urban university. The university presenter took on the role of site-coordinator for the partner district located 20 miles from the urban campus. In that setting, she supports emerging teachers in either a two-day a week field experience or a five-day a week final student teaching experience. This case study will provide an overview of the program and the core elements that include shared governance meetings, observation data from walkthroughs and performance assessments, co-teaching, mentor teacher monthly professional development meetings, and data collection and analysis for decision making at the university and K-6 campus. The case study will include lessons learned by emerging teachers and mentor teachers during implementation of the pilot. The long range goal is to collect data over five years to determine the value of a residency program for the K-6 students, mentor teachers, and emerging teachers as compared to a traditional one-semester student teaching experience.
