Abstract

University of Maine Farmington is a public liberal arts university in Western Maine known for its teacher preparation program. An innovation in the Secondary/Middle Education program gives pre-service teachers a powerful cohort experience in their second year, which provides a robust foundation for their remaining education courses. A 12-credit "block" of courses endows pre-service teachers with an authentic opportunity to integrate technology into a unit that they design based on strong educational theory and current research, and an opportunity to spend quality time in a middle or high school classroom with a mentor teacher while being supported and coached by a team of university faculty members in a technology-rich environment.
