Overview

"In Professional Development Schools: Schools for Developing a Profession, volume editor Linda Darling-Hammond and the other contributors explain the function, structure, and philosophy of the professional development school. They examine its aims and compare this new model of teacher education with the procedures other professions use to integrate and support their members. They also present a number of case studies of professional development school implementation, written firsthand by participants in individual reform efforts from all over the country. These examples, taken from urban and suburban settings, illustrate the accomplishments of professional development schools as well as the challenges they face as they strive to create a new and viable vision of the improvement of the American educational system." This book is appropriate for courses in teacher education, curriculum and instruction, and educational administration. School administrators, policy makers, staff developers, and union and professional association leaders will also recognize this book as an important resource.
