Anna Maria College-Calvin Coolidge School Professional Development School Guidebook.
Del Prete, Thomas; And Others
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. The Coolidge Professional Development School (Shrewsbury, Massachusetts) is a joint effort of the Anna Maria College (Paxton, Massachusetts) Education Department and the Calvin Coolidge School professional staff. 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.
