6 An Awareness Test Watch the video and count how many times the team in white passes the basketball…Watch carefully, there will be consequences! Click to play video. Slide 6

7 Food for thought… Why do people not see the moonwalking bear? Even on watching a second time? What does this have to do with your teaching? How can others help you with your moonwalking bears? How can you help others with theirs? Slide 7

8 PLC’s What are they? A small group of professionals organized to explore, discuss, research, debate and account for best practices in teaching and learning Click on the picture at right for an introduction to PLC’s by Richard and Rebecca DuFour Time marker 0:01-1:16 Slide 8

9 How to get started… Identify a topic to study or common interest Invite others who would be interested Find resources Decide how, when and where you will meet Discuss! Follow up with each other Q & A Slide 9

10 Blue Dots Look at where you placed your blue dot on the chart. Organize yourselves in large groups based on your phase of teacher attitudes. Slide 10

11 Blue Dots Within your large groups, answer this question: In terms of support, what do you need to help move you forward professionally? As you listen to other’s answers, see if you can find 2-3 others who are similar or complementary to you. You’ve just made a PLC. Exchange addresses. Slide 11

12 Give and Take… Revisit the sticky notes! Earlier today you posted two sticky notes. Each of you identified one strength and one area of your teaching that could benefit from change. You are your best resources! —If you need help, choose a sticky note from the strengths list to get help in an area where someone else is doing great things! If you want to give help, choose from the struggle list. Make contact with the person on the back of each sticky note and offer them some help in the area where they are struggling, or contact the person whose strength you have chosen and find out how they found success in this area! Slide 12

13 Why Action Research? When faced with a question about your teaching… the effectiveness of an instructional strategy, the implications for using a particular resource, the best way to motivate your students… what do you do? Don’t let the word “research” scare you! We are all participating in some form of action research in our classrooms, day in and day out. Imagine if we used the action research process to more formally explore the decisions we are making as educators.
