Redesign Initiatives Project for Urban Special Education Teacher Preparation


The Redesign Initiatives Project for Urban Special Education Teacher Preparation is five year grant from the U.S. Department of Education (2011-2016) will result in the redesign and restructuring of UWM's special education teacher preparation program at the elementary and middle school level. Initiatives include: ensuring multiple pathways to teaching; enhancing content expertise and technology use; incorporating a paid, pre-internship component in our UWM-MPS internship program; using clinical performance benchmarks; and connecting with our graduates, parents and the community through a "Summer Exchange."

Finally, in partnership with MPS, the project has an Early Success and Demonstration component, which involves supporting interns and new graduates during their first years of teaching and disseminating video clips of promising practices in special education.
