Staying the Course with Professional Development Schools
Jane E. Neapolitan, Terry R. Berkeley
Peter Lang, 2005 - Education - 200 pages
The Professional Development School (PDS) movement has been a major vehicle for the simultaneous renewal of Pre-K-12 education and the teaching profession for nearly twenty years. This second volume in a series created by Towson University goes beyond «start up» stories and presents data-based discussions on a variety of topics about PDS implementation and assessment, including PDSs in specialty areas, such as music and physical education, mentoring, teacher development, standards, accountability, and sustainability. Chapters are written by researchers who presented their work at the Second National Professional Development School Conference sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education's Professional Development School Network, and who represent public and private colleges and universities and school districts in Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Georgia, Kansas, and Missouri, and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
