A Professional Development Model for Learning To Use the National Science Education Standards.
Audet, Richard H.; Jordan, Linda K.
In order for standards to become the cornerstone of teachers' professional lives, they must first develop a keen understanding of the history and philosophy underlying standards, gain a working familiarity with standards documents, and engage in sense-making experiences that lead to personal meaning or internalization of the standards. This paper describes a professional development workshop framework for assisting both preservice and inservice audiences in gaining confidence in integrating the National Science Education Standards into their teaching practices.
