Applying the Characteristics of Effective Schools to Professional Development.
Kramer, Mary Jo
This paper examines the implications of research on effective schools for professional development at the State and local levels. The first part of the paper gives an overview of the research and a description of the characteristics of instructionally effective urban elementary schools. The paper then explores how these characteristics can be applied to inservice programs within schools. Issues discussed in this section include: (1) school and teacher expectations; (2) supervision and evaluation of instruction and teacher performance; and (3) community relations and communication. Ths paper concludes with recommendations for professional development that can be initiated by a State education agency. (Author/APM)
