Deep Change: Professional Development from the Inside Out
Professional development for teachers is at a crucial period. In order to help students meet demanding new standards, teachers must teach differently and have greater success than ever before. In order to teach better, teachers must experience powerful professional development. Inservice, as educators now know it, must change. The concept of "teacher as learner" must be explored more deeply by educators. At the core of this concept is the idea that many reforms undertaken in the name of greater student learning also apply to the ongoing learning of teachers. In Deep Change, Peery examines both theory and practice and recommends five key processes for increasing teacher learning which will improve staff development at a minimal cost. Peery also includes numerous examples of teacher growth taken from diverse contexts. Whether you are a principal, staff development administrator, or teacher-leader coaching other educators--and regardless of the unique complexities of your school--you will find ideas to liven and intensify the learning of teachers in this book.
