Mt. Mercy Professional Development School
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
Mount Mercy University is partnering with Regis Middle School and Center Point-Urbana schools to implement a Professional Development School (PDS) model for teacher preparation.
The program will provide university education majors with the opportunity to apply theory and content from their classes directly into schools. Officials say K-12 students will also benefit because of additional instruction and support by Mount Mercy's teacher interns.
Secondary education majors will work with Regis Middle school.
Half of the elementary education majors will work with Center Point-Urbana Primary School, while the other half will work with Center Point-Urbana Secondary School.
