What is a Critical Friends Group?

A Critical Friends Group (CFG) is a professional learning community made up of educators who come together to improve their practice through collaborative inquiry learning. By creating a safe and supportive environment, colleagues can examine student work and get feedback through collaboration.

The purpose of a CFG is to:

  • Create a professional learning community culture
  • Make the teaching practice explicit and public by “talking about teaching” through collaborative inquiry and reflective practice
  • Help educators help each other turn theories into practice and standards into actual student learning
  • Improve teaching and learning

Here’s what NCSD educators have to say about CFG:

“It was worth the sacrifice of time to know – WOW! I’m not alone!”

“…the best part of CFG was looking at myself and my practices without judgment, but help.”

“I’m glad I did this. I feel ‘connected’ to all the people who participated on a professional level and on a personal level.”

Thank you for your interest in improving professional practices and student learning.

Seats are limited! Don't miss out!
