The work of professional development requires that teachers, as members of professional communities, make their students and their own work public. The contributors of this unique volume examine the problems and successes of teachers in different contexts, and explore the mechanisms and strategies that support teacher learning. From developing standards and assessments to writing narratives about their classroom experience and researching their own practice, from reform networks to school/university partnerships, these teachers learn by being "caught in the action."
