Date: August 20 and 21, 2019

Description: Are your professional learning communities (PLCs) feeling a little flat? Do your meetings lean heavy on the professional and light on the community? Do you want to review or catch-up on the PLC series on building and sustaining a collaborative culture that was presented last year? This workshop is for PLC facilitator teams who want to add meaning and purpose to their current PLCs to help move teaching and learning further.

Teams will be enabled to identify and describe the critical features of high-functioning PLCs that establish a results-centered focus to improve instruction and student learning. Through practice, creation, and discussion, teams will examine changes in PLC practices that lead to increased student achievement. Participants will also identify critical learning team features, apply and discuss protocols for adult work, and apply and analyze protocols for examining student work.
