Toward a Theory of Teacher Community

Abstract

The authors of this article use their experience with a professional development project to propose a model of teacher community in the workplace. They provide a detailed account of this project and address the challenges that are involved in creating professional communities. The paper includes a discussion about why we should care about these communities for teachers noting that they provide intellectual renewal for teachers, they offer teachers a chance to continue their own learning in the subjects they teach, and they have positive affects on student learning.
