The purpose of this book is to provide districts with a comprehensive guide to building a powerful, systems-wide professional development program that will enhance the quality of teachers they employ. Building on recommendations from The National Staff Development Council and the latest research on teacher professional development, the foundation of this PD system is the power of job-embedded professional learning, with a particular focus on inquiry and professional learning communities.
