As the Edutopia site notes, "High-quality teaching is vital for student success." Created by the George Lucas Educational Foundation, this section of the Edutopia site presents readers with a plethora of information on Teacher Development. Educators, as well as anyone interested in the art and science of good teaching, may like to begin with the Overview section of the site. Here, a short introductory video lays the groundwork for growing great teachers. Moving on, the article "Why Is Teacher Development Important?: Because Students Deserve the Best" (which can be located under the Importance tab) provides an introduction to the tools, mentorship models, and experiences that help prepare teachers for the classroom. The Research tab is another great addition to the site and delivers a review of research with generous links to other articles, both on and off the Edutopia site. A number of Teacher Development Videos, which can be viewed free of charge, and a discussion board round out the site.
