Report
A new partnership to prepare teachers for
high-need urban schools
To improve student achievement
by improving what we know
has the greatest effect on learning--
Effective Teaching
◦ The ODU - Teacher Immersion Residency is a
partnership between Norfolk Public Schools and
Portsmouth Public Schools and ODU, designed to
meet the specific staffing needs of the division.
◦ The teacher immersion residency program is
embedded in the classrooms of the urban school
divisions.
◦ Residents are apprenticed to experienced
teachers who serve as their mentors.
◦ Residents spend 7 weeks in a state-of-the-art
Immersion Internship in the content discipline.
The Federal Government has recently dedicated
millions of dollars to fund 28 new Teacher Quality
Partnership Grants. The Old Dominion UniversityTeacher Immersion Residency Program is one of these
new, federally funded efforts.
Be a part of this nation-wide movement to
meet the needs of youth attending middle
and high school in an urban school!

Recruit highly qualified candidates as Residents, including
individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups.
Prepare highly qualified teachers through a content-enriched,
technology-infused, urban school-based secondary
education teacher residency program.
Support and retain in high-needs schools at least 10
Residents per academic year through intensive induction,
evidence-based mentoring, and professional development
over one-year pre-service and three years in-service (as
required by VA law.)
Improve student achievement in classes led by Residents in
participating high-needs schools.
Highly Effective Teachers
Dual Enrollment Courses
Other models take candidates who have
academic content knowledge, and give them
real-world teacher training and rigorous
education coursework. The ODU-TIR program
will take those candidates with content
knowledge, and give them that superior teaching
training – but then also give them more content,
and the training required for them to teach dual
enrollment courses (college-credit courses) in an
urban school.
