Brainstorm ideas that come to mind when you think of Professional Development Share with your shoulder partner Share large group
A Teacher’s Prayer O, Lord, when I die please let it happen during staff development because the Transition between life and Death will be so subtle Amen!
The Teachers Staff Development Prayer Highlights Issues with PD Content What about IMPLEMENTATION?
Preliminary Results Trends What, So What, Now What?
Year 1 Baseline Implementation Study Data reveals that content teachers were implementing ELL best practices between 40%- 55%. They were notified of the day/time we would observe during the first full year of implementation.

What? So What? Now What?
PD that is long term and highly focused increases likelihood of implementation fidelity (2-3 years minimum) Model Components: Leadership PD Content/Delivery Professional Learning Communities Implementation Studies Coaching
What did each panel member learn based upon the results of this project?
How do we move forward in light of what we know about the implementation gap and the model implemented in the pilot school?
