Personalizing Professional Development: How empowered teachers can take charge of professional learning and growth

Posted: April 4, 2019

It can, they argue, if the profession recognizes that large PD sessions should be followed up with a highly personalized plan of action. Reflection holds the key to identifying and addressing problems of practice as teachers advance in their skills. Also important to bear in mind: Teachers are most effective when they develop an understanding of why certain techniques work, not just what they are.

"Safety Guidelines for Chemical Demonstrations" (by the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education.) Appropriate physical and chemical demonstrations in the classroom or in a public venue have both educational and motivational value and are a long-standing pedagogy in chemical education. Science and STEM teachers planning chemical demonstrations have a responsibility to follow and document SAFER laboratory practices for each demonstration. Science leadership have the responsibility to work with their supervisees to make certain this protocol is in place: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/suppl/10.1021/acs.jchemed.7b00802/suppl_file/ed7b00802_si_001.pdf
