Title
Form and Substance in Mathematics and Science Professional Development
Abstract
This document reviews studies of professional development for teachers to examine benefits to students in science and mathematics education. A major finding from this review was that programs that focused on teaching classroom management strategies or attaining knowledge of how students learn specific school subject matter provided later benefits to students. The more successful professional development programs were not simply courses in mathematics or science, but instead were about what to teach and how students learn that subject matter.
