The Problem-Solving Cycle is a National Science Foundation funded project that has developed a research-based professional development (PD) model. This model is highly adaptable and can be specifically focused on problems of practice that are of interest to the participating teachers and administrators. Additionally, it can be tailored to highlight federal, state, district, and school-based initiatives that are ever-changing and ongoing in the life of a teacher.
The PSC project is a research-practice partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District. The current focus is on creating teacher leaders in middle school math classrooms and studying the effect on student learning. Learn more here.
