“Thanks for coming and sharing your knowledge with us, this book has changed the way we run our PLCs and the session was so useful in clarifying.”
Any educator knows that no one teacher can ever be all things to all students. But how can you effectively bring the combined skills of all leaders and teachers in a school together to provide the best learning experience possible? For a rapidly growing number of schools, professional learning communities (PLCs) are proving the answer.
PLCs are an approach to school improvement where groups of teachers work in high- performing collaborative teams to improve outcomes for ALL students. It all starts from a simple idea: students learn more when teachers work together. But that depends on how they work and what they work on! Of course, the many demands and challenges of running a busy school mean that bringing staff together as a cohesive unit to focus on the right work is not always as straightforward as it sounds.
