ABSTRACT
This article presents Chapter 3 of this monograph issue which is entitled "The Effects of a Long-Term Professional Development Program on the Beliefs and Practices of Experienced Teachers," by Dena Deglau and Mary O'Sullivan. The primary goal of this study was to determine how a 15-month PD program influenced urban teachers' beliefs about teaching and their teaching practices. The Physical Education for Progress program was a professional development program available to experienced physical education teachers in the Columbus Public Schools district. Following the workshop, teachers felt a sense of efficacy toward a tactical approach to teaching. Highly and moderately engaged teachers continued to implement both the tactical approach and the personal and social responsibility model.
