Learning Leverage: Designing Meaningful Professional Development for "All" Teachers
Hunzicker, Jana
Online Submission
The leverage of National Board candidacy provides a unique opportunity for substantial teacher learning in a way that many professional development experiences do not. The key is learning leverage--an appropriate balance of rigor, reward, and risk. Learning leverage occurs naturally among teachers who choose to pursue National Board certification, but it can be integrated into a school's everyday professional endeavors as well. When school leaders apply the dynamics of learning leverage to school improvement initiatives, teacher evaluation systems, and professional development offerings, powerful learning experiences for all teachers abound.
