Tackling the Learning Communities standard, it provides:

  • Original essays written by leading experts in the field to promote deeper understandings of the meaning of the Learning Communities standard
  • An array of templates, tools, and protocols to help you design and delivery quality professional learning in your own district or school
  • Case studies of districts "getting it right" and educators who have realized the promise of effective professional learning.
