Rich clinical preparation combined with progressive experiences in professional development school (PDS) settings are proposed to bring about systemic and impactful transformation of educator preparation and professional growth in order to improve and enhance P12 student learning. In this book, diverse authors describe their efforts to forge PDS partnerships to develop and deliver high quality training and practical experiences for candidates, and simultaneously provide professional development for experienced practitioners in ways that mirror recommendations found in authoritative reports and literature. The authors’ collective wisdom is vividly captured in the multivoiced chapters that are collaborations between cooperating teachers, school administrators, county and district level administrators, university supervisors, and instructional faculty. The contexts authors write about are recognizable, and the accomplishments they experienced and challenges faced will resonate with institutions courageously undertaking change or renewal. The book will be invaluable to school and university faculty and administrators as they transition to a partnering model of clinical preparation for teacher candidates: it will help stakeholders decide if their schools and institutions are ready to commit to a partnership, and highlight the benefits they stand to gain, but realistically address challenges that may be faced by administrators and faculties as well as teacher candidates in the PDS enterprise.

This second volume in a series created by Towson University goes beyond -start up- stories and presents data-based discussions on a variety of topics about PDS implementation and assessment, including PDSs in specialty areas, such as music and physical education, mentoring, teacher development, standards, accountability, and sustainability. Chapters are written by researchers who presented their work at the Second National Professional Development School Conference sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education's Professional Development School Network, and who represent public and private colleges and universities and school districts in Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Georgia, Kansas, and Missouri, and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)."
