Michigan Gateways Program #307
Professional Development Schools

This edition of Michigan Gateways offers a look at Michigan's
progress in this national movement to establish Professional
Development Schools (PDSs), where teachers and education
researchers work side by side in a school environment.

Gateways Report
With comments from PDS teachers and their university partners, our
report paints a picture of the Professional Development School as
something quite distinct from a laboratory school or a charter
school, and as a resource that can be very valuable to teachers
across the state.

For Discussion...
A mathematics teacher from Holt High School, in Holt, Michigan,
and a teacher from Edmonson Middle School of Willow Run Community
Schools, in Ypsilanti, Michigan, discuss how the PDS experience
has changed their approach to teaching.

Michigan Gateways joins teachers from Dexter Community Schools as
they visit Averill Elementary School, a PDS in Lansing, Michigan.

Resource Review
Publications by and about educators in PDSs are a convenient way
to "visit" a PDS.

The complete Gateways Guide for this program can be found on the
Michigan State University Gopher service on or shortly after
