Why Action Research? The New Look of Professional Development – NCLB Shifted the emphasis of professional development to scientifically-based research. Focused on improving student achievement in all content areas. Defines professional development as “high quality, sustained, intensive, and classroom focused in order to have a positive and lasting impact on classroom instruction and the teacher’s performance in the classroom.” Clearly states that professional development activities are not one day or short-term workshops or conferences. The professional development must take place over a period of time in order to collect the necessary data to determine the effect on student achievement.
