Summary

Use this updated classic to design and strengthen professional development in your school!

Today's teachers must prepare all students to understand, master, and apply important concepts and skills in mathematics and science and become able problem solvers and inquirers. As someone who plans professional development, you are in a unique position to meet these challenges by designing more powerful professional learning programs--programs that deepen teachers' content and pedagogical knowledge, improve teaching skills, explore student thinking, and build a learning community.

Designing Professional Development for Teachers of Science and Mathematics, now in its second edition, guides professional developers, administrators, and teacher leaders to design learning experiences for teachers that are directly linked to improving student learning. It offers a framework for planning professional development, summarizes key research, and introduces critical issues. This book suggests many strategies to introduce professional learning into the daily work of teachers. Learn to design professional development programs that incorporate
