In this applied project the focus is on the importance of professional development for secondary classroom teachers. The author first reviews some of the issues involved with educating English as a second language (ESL) students in public education. Then the importance of professional development for secondary content area teachers is addressed. Finally, a presentation, along with handouts, is presented about how a year of guided professional development can be used to help secondary content area teachers improve their instruction.
