The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Project: A Pathway To Scaling Up Reform In Mathematics And Science, Joanne E. Goodell, Francis S. Broadway, Linda Gojak Mar 2002

The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Project: A Pathway To Scaling Up Reform In Mathematics And Science, Joanne E. Goodell, Francis S. Broadway, Linda Gojak

Francis Broadway

The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Institute (NOMSI) provided professional development for school-based leadership teams in standards-based mathematics and science teaching practices and leadership skills. Leadership teams from six local school districts were recruited to attend a two-week summer institute in August 2001, which focused on national standards, principles of effective professional development, an understanding of the conditions necessary for change. One or two faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences at each university also participated in the summer institute. Teams prepared a professional development plan for their school or district and received a mini-grant to implement their plan. Coaches ...

Elaborating A Model Of Teacher Professional Growth, David Clarke, Hilary Hollingsworth Dec 2001

Elaborating A Model Of Teacher Professional Growth, David Clarke, Hilary Hollingsworth

Dr Hilary Hollingsworth

This paper details a model of teacher professional growth and relates the model to the research data on which the model is empirically founded. A key feature of the model is its inclusion of four analytic domains in close correspondence to those employed by Guskey (Educational Researcher 15(5), 1986) and others, but the model proposed in this paper identifies the specific mechanisms by which change in one domain is associated with change in another. The interconnected, non-linear structure of the model enabled the identification of particular “change sequences” and “growth networks”, giving recognition to the idiosyncratic and individual nature ...
