When it comes to professional development, where should a district begin if they want to get a handle on what works and what doesn't?

DCPS Takes a Leap Toward More Effective PD

In The Mirage, we challenged school systems to set clear, measurable goals around professional development and determine what works and doesn't work. D.C. Public Schools answered the call.

How I am Learning to Practice What I Preach

It's hard for experienced teachers to challenge themselves to learn more and continue improving their instruction, but doing so benefits both students and teachers.

Has Teacher Evaluation Ruined Everything? Studies Say: No

Although many parents and teachers don’t think new evaluation systems have worked, the evidence coming from schools using them tells a very different story.

How Can States Help Teachers Improve?

State leaders and policymakers play a critical role in driving innovative teacher development strategies and creating the conditions for teachers to grow.

Taking The Mirage on Tour

After releasing The Mirage in August, we spent the rest of 2015 presenting our findings and listening to folks who are doing the hard work of helping teachers improve every day. Here’s some of what we've learned along the way.

Dina Hasiotis

Creating the Conditions for Strong Teacher Development

Achievement First welcomes a close examination of their teacher development bright spots and blind spots in order to continually improve their approach.

Join the Teacher Development Discussion

How can we get better at preparing new teachers for the classroom and setting them up for long-term growth and success?

Come On, Teachers: Let’s Own Our Development

One Fishman Prize alumni challenges teachers to figure out their weaknesses and own their development in order to improve upon them.

What Andy Smarick Gets Wrong on What The Mirage Gets Wrong

Critiquing measures of teacher performance in The Mirage misses the bigger issue: our collective failure to measure the impact professional development has on teachers.

Dan Weisberg

A Radical Act of Teacher Development

A teacher reminds us that true improvement at any challenging task is hard and requires honest reflection on where we are—and where we want to be.

Jennifer Corroy Porras

The Mirage Conversation Continues

While it’s been inspiring to see The Mirage garner attention in the last month, it’s also clear that there is still confusion about the challenges of teacher development.

Andy Jacob

Getting Real About Teacher Development

The Mirage doesn't reveal a clean, direct solution for improving teacher development—it raises fundamental questions that need to be answered. How will we respond?

Dottie Smith

The Five Stages of The Mirage

Many will react strongly to The Mirage—and not all of those reactions will be positive. For us at TNTP, the findings have been sobering, but we're still focused on improving.

Karolyn Belcher

Do We Know How to Help Teachers Get Better?

Great teaching is real, but we are much further from achieving it at scale through professional development than we once believed.
