Canter for Applied Research and Educational Improvement
In January 2001 the Minneapolis Public School District received a grant from the Minnesota
Department of Children, Families and Learning to implement a professional development model.
The project, entitled Linking Authentic Instruction to Students’ Achievement Using Peer
Coaching, was designed to “enhance teachers’ understanding and skills as they relate to
authentic instruction and student achievement” (Carmichael- Tanaka, 2000, p. 1). Four full-day
professional development seminars were conducted between February 15, 2001 and June 15,
2001. This report looks at the program's impacts on instruction, assessment, and student performance.
