PLC's Things to think about...

Here are a few things to think about before the next PLC.



  • Everyone has an impact on all students ! (even if they are not in your class)
  • Please follow the norms of the group. (Do not work ahead or work on other things)
  • Homework completion vs. Skill Gaps
  1. Homework completion is a behavior that needs to be addressed in the classroom through communication with students and parents. Gaps in skills or deficiencies of skills needs to be identified, retaught, and documented.
  • PLC"S SHOULD FOCUS MAINLY ON GAPS IN SKILLS NOT HOMEWORK COMPLETION

PLC'S

BEFORE YOU COME TO PLC'S

IDENTIFY STUDENT BEHAVIOR/GAPS/SKILL DEFICIENCIES

TALK TO THE STUDENT, DETERMINE A PATTERN, THEME, OR REASON.

DOCUMENT

WHAT TYPE OF TASK OR SKILL IS THE STUDENT STRUGGLING IN ?

DOCUMENT

TRY A DIFFERENT TEACHING STRATEGY OR ASSIGNMENT FOR THE STUDENT TO COMPLETE.

WHAT GAPS CAN YOU IDENTIFY? WHAT DO THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL?

TRY AN INTERVENTION.

DOCUMENT

THEN..... REPORT YOUR EFFORTS TO PLC'S

BRAINSTORM WITH YOUR TEAM FOR OTHER IDEAS TO TRY NEXT.

REPEAT........

Morning Routine

Before the Bell

Please don't start class before the bell. Students might need that time to organize, get materials, or gather their thoughts before the day begins.


Morning Announcements

Please make sure students are listening during morning announcements to hear important information about the day or week. Students should not be talking or working on other items during morning announcements.
