Professional development schools provide effective theory and practice

A description of an innovative Professional Development School program initiated by a Midwestern university is described. Successful components of this model are explained. The integration of educational practices linking the university, public schools, and the community, is also analyzed. A major change in teacher training with this model is that it is based on a program more similar to an apprenticeship or a medical internship. Preservice teachers in the Professional Development School model are provided with the opportunity to utilize theory much more extensively through practice in public school sites.
