Item description for Teachers' Professional Learning in the Context of High School Reform by Elizabeth Boatright...

Despite attention to a more "personalized" learning experience for students, the small high school reform movement is curiously silent about the possibilities and challenges of instructional improvement. This book, however, provides data on a different approach to high school teachers' professional learning that centers on content- and context-specific instructional expertise, and does so in settings that are simultaneously concerned with structural reforms. Readers will obtain a deeper understanding of how an external coaching organization constructs what they believe to be high quality professional learning opportunities for high school teachers, specifically in service of deepening content knowledge, increasing standards for student performance, and enhancing the belief that all students have the intellectual capacity for challenging academic work. Of particular interest to scholars and school/district leaders, this book offers a new paradigm for high school teachers' professional development and draws conclusions on how such opportunities can influence classroom practices.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teachers' Professional Learning in the Context of High School Reform?

Excellent new work on high school reform  Apr 29, 2008
This is a terrific look inside the work of current high school reform efforts, and builds on previous work on teacher professional community in high schools. Boatright's deep qualitative work captures the nuances of interactions designed to improve teaching and learning in the context of a large comprehensive high school engaged in transforming itself into a collection of small schools. The focus on understanding ways that an external support organization provides guidance for instructional improvement efforts in key content areas offers lessons for other schools engaged in deep instructional change work. An excellent primer for any high school considering this kind of transformation work!
