Herron, Melinda – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019

Bambrick-Santoyo, Paul – Educational Leadership, 2019
Traditional PD sessions share information on new practices, but teachers often can't translate that information effectively to implement the new practice in their classrooms. A better way is to show a teacher a model of excellent practice by a colleague and help her reflect on the "gap" between her practice and the model, then plan…
