Nurture teacher development through focused and realistic approaches!

Although school administrators consider supporting and sustaining teachers′ professional development a priority, more pressing day-to-day imperatives often eclipse this goal. Supporting and Sustaining Teachers′ Professional Development specifically targets busy school principals who want practical suggestions for how to balance these everyday administrative tasks while encouraging teachers′ professional growth.

Focusing on seven questions selected for their relevance to school administrators, this essential reference summarizes the practical implications of the latest research and theory on the topic of teacher development. Organized around three key elements of current NSDC national standards, this resource for new, veteran, and aspiring school leaders will illustrate how to:

  • Emphasize research and practice
  • Provide rationales that explain and justify the encouragement of professional development
  • Link teachers′ professional development to student learning
  • Interpret national standards for professional development and apply them practically
Improve student achievement, retain highly qualified teachers, and ground school practices in sound research by learning how to encourage your teachers while remaining committed to your leadership responsibilities.
