Principles and Elements of Effective Professional Development

The Biblical concepts of sanctification and community will set the foundation for a professional development plan that both encourages all teachers and challenges teachers to higher levels of professionalism. An overview will be given of a plan composed of: peer and self observation, collaborative lesson design (a.k.a. Lesson Study), a four year cycle of readings and discussions, critical friends tuning protocols, smaller team/cluster meetings, weekly email updates, monthly collegiums, annual traditions, and summer conferences. A corresponding packet of sample documents will be provided to participants.
