Professional Learning Community According to Learning Forward’s recently released 2011 Standards for Professional Learning, professional learning communities: ▫Engage in continuous school improvement, ▫Promote collective responsibility, and ▫Support alignment of individual, team, school, and school system goals
Professional Learning Community Powerful PLCs effectively respond to the four critical questions: ▫What do students need to know and/or be able to do? ▫How will we know they have learned it? ▫What will we do when they haven’t? ▫What will we do when they already know it?
Professional Learning Community Effective PLCs have 6 key characteristics: ▫Focus on Learning/Results ▫Shared Values and Vision ▫Supportive and Shared Leadership ▫Culture of Collaboration ▫Collective Inquiry and Learning ▫Mutual Trust and Respect Dr. Starr has a vision for all schools to engage in a PLC by September 2012
