Professional Development for School Improvement: Empowering Learning Communities integrates knowledge from professional development and school improvement to describe frameworks that can increase the capacity of individuals, teams, and organizations to grow and develop. The book argues that both professional development and school improvement should have as their primary purpose the improvement of teaching and learning. Eleven frameworks for professional development are presented, along with strategies for integrating multiple frameworks in comprehensive programs. School leader development is addressed as a prerequisite for professional and school development. Leader, cultural, team, and teacher development are described as capacity building functions of professional development. Abundant learning tools such as Case Studies, Chapter Problems, Discussion Questions, Charts, and Summaries in every chapter help reinforce chapter concepts.

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

"This study offered an opportunity to explore what happens when seven elementary and middle schools in seven states attempt to foster a school-wide and lasting change in classroom practice. The schools all sought to implement service-learning as part of a nationwide network sponsored by the National Youth Leadership Council and funded by the DeWitt Wallace Readers' Digest Fund and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Service-learning is an experiential, largely youth-driven classroom pedagogy that integrates service into the academic curriculum and meets a genuine community need. The conceptual framework for this study sought to identify the deep structure of school change by focusing on the role that teachers' instructional mental models and professional learning communities played in implementation. Implementation was defined as both breadth (i.e., teachers' use) and longevity (i.e., institutionalization). The research design included both quantitative and qualitative measures. Three primary sources of data were used in the stuy--surveys given to all staff members, teacher and principal interviews with significant actors, and focus groups with key service-learning leaders and also non-users. The salient variables differed for implementation breadth and longevity. In understanding why some teachers used service-learning and some do not, users and non-users were not different by age, gender, years at their current school, or teacher commitment. What differentiated service-learning users was their mental models about the nature of teaching and learning. This teacher group also had higher levels of efficacy and displayed a pattern of instructional practices (e.g., using the internet, cooperative groups) that was different than non-users. Teachers who used service-learning also enjoyed a significantly higher level of professional learning community, but that significance was overshadowed by the importance of their beliefs. In the area of institutionalization, professional learning community but not mental models proved to be significant in supporting the long-term sustainability of service-learning. In a comparative case study of two schools, the stronger professional learning community was able to create greater agreement about a shared purpose, more support for change leadership, higher staff participant and ownership, more shared learning, less political conflict, less structural tensions, better communication, and more openness to change"--Leaves v-vi.
