The purpose of the book is to provide Professional Development School (PDS) workers with a framework for conducting research in a PDS. The book examines the history of these schools as a phenomenon, analyzes PDS research since its inception in 1986, outlines the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education's (NCATE) PDS standards, and the American Education Research Association's (AERA) recommended research methods. The book includes hypothetical examples of research in these schools that are approved by the AERA.
