Teacher Learning That Supports Student Learning

author: Linda Darling-Hammond
description: In light of the training and professional development necessary for teacher success, Darling-Hammond examines professional development strategies that work to find out what they have in common. She concludes that there are several features that successful strategies have in common -- they tend to be experiential, grounded in participants' questions, collaborative, connected to teachers' work with their students, sustained and intensive, and connected to other aspects of school change.
