Preparation of Professional Development Schools, Poland


The Center for Citizenship Education (CEO) in Poland currently supports a national school network —the Lab Schools Program. Teachers College (TC) is collaborating with CEO to provide professional development for teachers and principals from the CEO laboratory schools and additional school sites in the Warsaw area selected as potential professional development schools.

Professional development focuses on lesson/unit design, high‐impact practices, and deeper learning strategies and interactive pedagogies; and developing communities of practice for teachers. Additionally, TC is assisting CEO to set up demonstration classrooms, to work with school leaders to implement effective strategies of instructional leadership, and to provide support for implementation of the new high impact strategies being mastered by the teachers.
