This study describes twenty-five projects that take place in more than ten university-school communities, most of which were derived from the Illinois Professions Learners' partnership (IPLP) project. The project stems from a Department of Education Teacher Quality. Enhancement grant whose goal is to transform teacher education throughout the country. It looks at six aspects of teacher education that can make a difference in preparing teacher candidates for all schools, and especially for high-need schools. These aspects are developing partnerships, collaborations, meeting the needs of all students, technology, field and clinical experiences, and teacher induction. Each of these areas is described in the section overview and chapters detail successful projects in each area.
