There is a burgeoning concern among researchers, educators, and policymakers to develop teacher capacities through professional development (PD) as a means for improving instructional practices to increase student learning and achievement. In this paper we share results of a study, utilizing a levels of transfer framework to investigate how three elementary school teachers transition their knowledge from a PD experience into classroom practice; in particular, how does use of prediction questions serve as a catalyst for promoting reform-teaching practice?
