Review "Professional Development for School Improvement: Empowering Learning Communities integrates knowledge from professional development and school improvement to describe frameworks that can increase the capacity of individuals, teams, and organizations to grow and develop." "The book argues that both professional development and school improvement should have as their primary purpose the improvement of teaching and learning. Eleven frameworks for professional development are presented, along with strategies for integrating multiple frameworks in comprehensive programs. School leader development is addressed as a prerequisite for professional and school development. Leader, cultural, team, and teacher development are described as capacity building functions of professional development. Abundant learning tools such as Case Studies, Chapter Problems, Discussion Questions, Charts, and Summaries in every chapter help reinforce chapter concepts."--BOOK JACKET
