Striving to Make a Difference

How high-impact PLC's change student learning

What is a PLC?

An effective Professional Learning Community (PLC) is a student- focused group of educators that collaborate together to develop learning plans for all students, create authentic assessments of learning, analyze the evidence of learning to improve practice, and construct a systematic process that ensures struggling students learn.

PLC's ask reflective questions about their practice: "What do we want each student to learn?" "How will we know when each student has learned it?" "How will we respond when a student experiences difficulty in learning?" "What will we do if they already know it?"

"I think it has to do with having the time to help teachers step back and be more self-reflective on what they're doing. If we built that kind of practice into the schools...that would be profound change." Amy Mendick
