Campus Instructional Focus (A.K.A. POP): Our Goal
After an analysis of campus data, we found that faculty and staff need to effectively use PLCs so that students will have clarity as to what they need to know and what they must be able to do with their learning in order to achieve personal growth in all content areas.
Theory of Action:
Provide the foundational purpose of the why behind PLCs.
Teachers will use PLCs as the primary strategy for improving the instructional culture of Peterson Elementary through:
Looking at student and teacher work;
Designing quality common formative assessments (CFAs)
Reviewing and responding to data.
Guiding Questions: What does an authentic and collaborative PLC look like? How does data, student work, and student feedback validate the effectiveness of PLCs? What professional development is needed to ensure that all staff members understand what learning targets, authentic learnings tasks, and collaborative PLCs look like?
