3. Scroll down and click on “Professional Development” http://naepdc.org/resource_library/professional_development/PD_home.html
4. Click on “Pre-service training”http://naepdc.org/resource_library/professional_development/teacher%20training/preservice_training.html
The states who list their resources here are willing to share—sometimes for a reproduction cost. But, you do not need to start from scratch when one of your colleagues has already developed a resource.
We continue to add state resources to the web site. Look around the web site when you get a few minutes.
If you have resources you want to share, zap them to Kathi Polis at email@example.com.
