An Urban Schools-University Partnership that Prepares and Retains Quality Teachers for “High Need” Schools
This paper describes a full-time teaching internship program, where, in lieu of student teaching, interns serve as classroom teachers in urban area schools. Through a partnership between a university and participating school districts, all interns received intensive mentoring and induction during their first year. The program results indicated, among other things, that there was a 100% retention rate of interns in the teaching profession. Furthermore, there were significant growth in teaching interns' confidence, readiness, and self-efficacy regarding their abilities to teach successfully.

The study examined the effect of international student teaching experience on the professional and personal development of preservice teachers. 26 graduate students in a private university in Turkey had a two-month internship in a mid western state in the United States. The main component of the internship was a six-week student teaching experience in high schools. The findings suggest that the international student teaching experience and the overall internship program with its cultural components contributed in a positive way to student teachers’ professional and personal development and helped student teachers increase their cultural awareness.

The Paired-Placement of Student Teachers: An Alternative to Traditional Placements in Secondary Schools
The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of the paired-placement of student teachers in secondary school settings. Participants were 23 student teachers who were placed as partners, their mentor teachers, and a sample of the pupils in their classes. Results indicated that pair-placed student teachers enjoyed a rich learning experience because of the tensions, dialog, and reflections that grew out of being placed with a peer. The secondary settings allowed for a combination of solo and team teaching. Results also suggested that pupil learning was facilitated by having two student teachers.
