This practical book will help school districts and teacher education departments create and sustain effective partnerships to support teacher development. The authors–supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation–worked with school districts and universities on collaborating to improve pre- and inservice training for teachers. In this how-to guide, they share lessons learned and discuss the steps in the process, including who should form and lead a partnership, how to create a common purpose across institutions, how to evaluate progress, how to sustain it as personnel and resources change, and the role of the community.
