Resources on Professional Development Schools: An Annotated Bibliography.
Abdal-Haqq, Ismat, Comp.
The 119 annotations, as well as the other resources, that are included in this bibliography and resource guide relate to professional development schools (PDSs), professional practice schools, clinical schools, partner schools, and similar institutions. Because they are envisioned as exemplary settings where preservice, novice, and experienced teachers can hone their teaching skills and where innovations can be developed and tested, the PDS is often compared to the teaching hospital. Each is seen as playing a pivotal role in training skilled practitioners. The written sources that have been abstracted for this guide deal with a variety of topics related to PDSs: institutionalization, collaboration, definition, resource allocation, development, implementation, and evaluation. Concept papers, research reports, handbooks, bibliographies, course outlines, policy statements, and historical perspectives are represented. The appendices include lists of newsletters which frequently contain information on PDSs, audio cassette tapes of conference sessions related to PDSs, and groups or organizations that are associated with PDSs, as well as a fact sheet on the Clinical Schools Clearinghouse.
