TRENDS IN THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF SCHOOL TEACHERS
Keywords: Curriculum, critically and creatively, professional development, in-service.
AbstractSchool teachers play the pivotal role in establishing students’ interest in learning every day. Teachers are the direct implementers of the school curriculum in the classroom. These teachers inspire the students to think critically and creatively. School teachers really shape the society so that school could aid not just by its role in developing the society but sustainable development in particular. Teachers are also active learners. They learn from their students most especially in the changing society as well as the changing behaviors of the students. Teachers are themselves learning throughout their teaching career. Good teachers are always in search of the activities that help them in their professional development. Teachers seek for new innovations and updates in their area of expertise because the knowledge with which they graduated to become a teacher before has become insufficient now. Teacher education refers to both pre-service and in-service programmers' which adopt both formal and/or non-formal approaches. It is a continuing process which focuses on teacher career development.
