Leadership Guide
For K-12 Teacher Professional Learning

Traditional investments in teacher learning have not consistently yielded results for students. Creating transformative schools and classrooms where all students develop agency and efficacy requires a new approach to how teachers help them learn and engage.

The Leadership Guide for K-12 Teacher Professional Learning is for leaders in classrooms, schools and school systems who want coherent, authentic, sustainable, and effective teacher learning aimed at improving outcomes for students.

This multipart guide provides practical guidance for leaders, whether they are making the case for transforming teacher learning in their setting, implementing a sustainable approach, or seeking support for scaling and extending effective practices.
