Peer Review Redux

Posted on | April 13, 2010 | Comments Off

The idea of peer review for teachers, that I wrote about in United Mindworkers, and A Union of Professionals in the 1990s has now come alive again.  See this recent Huffington Post piece.

First there is a new book by Jennifer Goldstein, published by Teachers College Press.  It describes the work of the PAR panels in detail and takes the mystery out of the process.

Also, Susan Moore Johnson along with her students at Harvard has put up a first rate user’s guide to peer review.

Steven Sawchuk of Education Week recently reviewed the state of play and the districts with current programs.
