Part 2 identifies five principles and characteristics of PDSs. Comments from teachers, interns, and college faculty involved in pds partnerships supplement this discussion. Part 3 offers practical advice, in a question and answer format, on how to form and sustain a pds. Answers to the following questions are given: (1) Why start a pds? (2) Who will initiate the partnership? (3) How do schools and colleges find partners? (4) How are partnerships defined and developed? And (5) How do you organize and run a pds partnership?

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of the professional development school (PDS) and the commitment to collaboration advocated by educational reformers derives in part from a recognition of the need to more fully incorporate the voices of teachers in teacher education and professional development.

This guidebook contains: (1) background on the PDS; (2) a summary of beliefs and assumptions about teaching-learning, teacher preparation, and ongoing professional development; (3) an outline of roles and responsibilities of the PDS personnel; (4) description of some benefits of the PDS program; (5) an evaluation plan; (6) an overview of the teacher preparation program; (7) a description of professional development day activities, a sample semester schedule, and two sample day schedules; (8) outlines of the teacher preparation program orientation and cooperating teacher orientation; (9) evaluation forms; and (10) outlines of activities for the teacher retreat and reflection events. The appendices include: information on PDSs in Massachusetts; school-university issues to consider in forming a PDS; a timeline from the 1990 grant proposal; and some notes on clinical methodology and the teaching-learning concept.

A much-needed counterpoint to the sweeping rhetoric of reform, this important book offers a nuanced depiction of the challenges and possibilities at the school and classroom level. Through the experiences of urban high school teachers who partner with their local university, Del Prete provides unique insight into teaching and learning in the midst of reform. He effectively illustrates why focusing on teaching practice and school cultures--more than standards and accountability--is a more fruitful way to achieve real and lasting change. With powerful portraits from classrooms serving diverse and low-income students, this book: (1) Depicts the daily concerns and small victories of teachers determined to support all students in meaningful learning, and prepare them for postsecondary education; (2) Characterizes the importance of a coherent school learning culture, based on one of the most effective small urban schools in the country; and (3) Illustrates the potential of university-school partnerships to support the development of teaching practices that will help close the achievement gap
