Product Description

This volume in the Agenda for Education in a Democracy series explores the expanding popularity of professional development schools and their role in educating teachers and promoting school improvement. Effective Professional Development Schools describes the criteria for establishing quality professional development schools, the policies and financial arrangements needed to sustain them, and ways to evaluate their progress. In addition to thirty years' experience as a teacher and administrator in public schools, Richard W. Clark has fifteen years' experience working with school-university partnerships and professional development schools. He offers numerous case studies and examples of successful professional development schools, as well as school selection standards, sample joint agreements, checklists, and other valuable tools. Along with Clark's insights regarding professional development schools, this book includes a new essay from John I. Goodlad addressing the challenges of school-university partnerships. The book is a practical guide for teacher educators and school administrators who want to develop joint programs on teacher professional development. Beyond this practical advice, Effective Professional Development Schools explores some of the key concepts that need to be considered by school and university-based educators as they work together in professional development school settings.
