Projects and Research


The Urban Parent-Teacher Education Collaborative (UPTEC) is a community-based model of teacher education that includes urban parents in a pre-service teacher education program. It is a three-part teacher education course developed and co-taught by Dr. Anthony Collatos and urban parent activist, Ms. MaryJohnson. Fully funded by a Faculty Service Award grant, UPTEC is also a two-year research project that seeks to understand how pre-service teachers' engagement in the program influences their perceptions of urban schools and communities; how they include parents and communities in their classrooms; and how their identities as urban educators are formed. With this pilot program, the educational community will, for the first time, obtain empirically based data for more culturally inclusive community-based teacher education programs.
