Silvernail); (3) "In Pursuit of a Dual Agenda: Creating a Middle Level Professional School" (Pamela L. Grossman); (5) "Perils and Potentials: A Tale of Two Professional Development Schools" (Jon Snyder); (6) "Professional Development in Action: An Idea with Visiting Rights" (Jean Lythcott and Frank Schwartz); (7) "The Los Angeles Professional Practice School: A Study of Mutual Impact" (Johanna K.
