been running the foundation. Shecontinues the research he began and the
Teacher Development programs.This investigation sought to determine if
there was a difference in the development of effective urban teacher
characteristics after completing a traditional internship experience or a
Professional Development School internship experience. The Urban Teacher
Selection Interview was used to assess 10 characteristics including
persistence, value of children's learning, putting ideas into practice,
approach to at-risk students, professional/personal orientation to
students, the bureaucracy, fallibility, teacher success, student success,
and planning and organization. Assessments were completed before and after
subjects participated in urban internships. Pre- and posttest scores were
compared using descriptive statistics and a paired-samples t test.
Results communicated no significant difference between pre- and posttest
scores when student interns completed a traditional or Professional
Development School internship experience. This suggests that although the
internship experience is often viewed as the capstone experience of teacher
preparation programs, short-term experiences do not adequately prepare
teacher candidates for urban school teaching.Haberman Educational
