Colleges/Universities and Partner Schools
Fostering Relationships Between Institutions
The target populations for the SITES-M project include: pre-service teachers at the participating colleges and universities, selected K-8 in-service teachers and pupils at participating partner elementary and middle schools in Nashville, Jackson, Memphis, and Chattanooga. These college-school partnerships are the cornerstone of this statewide project.
In addition to seeking to improve the knowledge of mathematics for teaching, SITES-M seeks to create a closer relationship between those institutions that prepare teachers and those that employ them. Each college and university participants has identified a partner school, preferably a high-need school.
