Abstract: The Holmes Group (1990) report calls for Professional Development School (PDS) faculty to be engaged in thoughtful inquiry as they work together as partners with perspective teachers to encourage and promote reflection and research on practice. The report states:

Schools that prepare new teachers must do something more. From the time student teachers first begin seriously to hone their skills and to assume their professional attitudes, the habits of reflecting, questioning, and trying out and evaluating new ways of teaching--by themselves and with colleagues--should become embedded in their professional identity. (Holmes Group, 1990, p.55)
