    ABSTRACTThis document contains staff-development standards developed

    by over 50 educators. The standards are organized into three categories:context, process, and content. The section on context addresses theorganization, system, or culture in which the new learning will beimplemented. Process refers to the "how" of staff development and includesdescriptions of the ways in which new knowledge and skills can be acquired.Some examples of process standards include group development, follow up andsupport, and evaluation. The last category, content, refers to the actualskills and knowledge effective elementary school educators need to possess oracquire through staff development. Examples of this category includeresearch-based instructional strategies, pre-adolescent development, highexpectations, and curriculum. Each of the standards' descriptions containsseveral parts: a succinct statement of the staff-development expectation; thetheory and research that validates the significance of the standard andexpands its understanding; a real-life application of the standard; resultsthat can be expected if the standard is consistently applied; a means forindividuals and groups to consider the implications of the standard for theirsetting; and sources for citations in the rationale section.
