Abstract:
This is an excerpt [Ch. 7] from the seventh in an annual series of journals on adult learning and literacy. The authors of this chapter, drawing on the K-12 and adult literacy education research literature, "examine two topics: (a) what is known about what makes teacher professional development effective, and (b) how teachers change as a result of professional development." Extensive list of references is included. Also, see this chapter online at the NCSALL site http://www.ncsall.net/fileadmin/resources/ann_rev/smith-gillespie-07.pdf
