Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Describes the process of collaborative educational reform in the context of the professional development school model. First-person stories describe how "reformed" schools and universities look and assess the impact of such reform on students, teachers, and colleges of education.

Lessons from Restructuring Experiences describes the process of collaborative educational reform in the context of the professional development school model. First-person stories and literature reviews show how "reformed" schools and universities look and assess the impact of such reform on students, teachers, and colleges of education.

Intended for readers interested in establishing or assessing collaborative reform efforts, the book is organized in three units. The first provides an overview that will enhance readers'
understanding of professional development schools and school restructuring. The authors review and highlight important concepts and processes in collaborative restructuring. The second unit brings the concepts and processes of collaborative change to life by sharing the stories of teachers and administrators in elementary and secondary professional development schools. The third unit addresses the complex issue of assessing the outcomes of restructuring in both schools and the university.
