The partnership with Beebe Elementary School was established in 2007 as a site for pre-service teachers to link theory and practice. Elementary education pre-service teachers are mentored in reading and language arts by expert teachers for two consecutive terms. This 20-week supervised field experience provides pre-service teachers the opportunity to teach a variety of literacy lessons and measure their impact on student learning. The North Central College–Beebe partnership was the recipient of the District 203 Business Community Education Partnership award in 2007.
