A major product of the Center for Improving Teacher Quality, a CCSSO-run federally funded center from 2002-2007, is the document Collaborative Programs in General and Special Teacher Education - An Action Guide for Higher Education and State Policy Makers by Linda Blanton and Marleen Pugach.  This document provides a conceptual framework and models for collaborative teacher preparation, plus self assessment tools and strategies to prepare all teachers to teach students with disabilities.  It served as a resource to help state policymakers and IHEs work together to develop teacher preparation programs that exemplify collaboration between general education and special education programs.
