PLCs “ Mere collegiality will not cut it. Discussions about curricular issues or popular strategies can feel good but go nowhere. The right image to embrace is of a group of teachers who meet regularly to share, refine, and assess the impact of lessons and strategies continuously to help increasing number of students learn at higher levels.” -Mike Schmoker “On Common Ground” The Power of Professional Learning Communities, 2005.
