Continuous Improvement Professional Learning Community Framework What does it look like? What does it look like? Module Two
PLC Big Ideas & Core Values Ensuring that students learn Ensuring that students learn Learning for all Learning for all A Culture of Collaboration A Culture of Collaboration Teamwork Teamwork Focus on Results Focus on Results Data-Driven Decisions Data-Driven Decisions Continuous Improvement Philosophy
Next Steps-From Module One Based on your : Understanding of PLC framework Culture Shift Discussion What are the next steps? For you? For your GLT? Select 2 or 3 ideas for your focus Build on your strength areas
In-Process Measures – Summative & Formative Assessments What does a Professional Learning Community look like? I think it functions a lot like the ARDT.
Pre Planning: Identification of Need 1. Develop/Review Student Learning Expectations 2. Examine alignment of learning expectations with assessments 3. Review assessment data 4. Identify areas of need based on assessment Plan: 1. Describe the current process for addressing the identified area of need (flow chart) 2. Review data to determine baseline performance in the specific area identified (Run Chart/Pareto Diagram) 3. Identify potential root causes contributing to the identified area of need (Cause & Effect Diagram, 5 Whys, Relations Diagram) 4. Study research-based best practice/improvement theory addressing areas of need DO 1. Plan for implementation of improvement theory (Force Field Analysis, Action Plan) 2. Implement research-based best practices improvement theory based on root causes according to the Action Plan 3. Monitor the implementation of research-based best practice/improvement theory to insure integrity and fidelity 4. Assess student learning Study: 1. Examine student assessment results (compare to baseline) 2. Assess the impact of research-based best practice/improvement theory on student achievement Act: 1. Standardize the implementation of research- based best practice (improvement theory) that improved student learning (revise the flow chart to reflect changes made to the system) 2. If improvement theory was unsuccessful continue the PDSA cycle (try another improvement theory based on the next identified root causes) Action Research Overview for Professional Learning Communities Identify areas of strength and weakness? What do we want students to know? What do they know? What have they learned? Most effective/best practice teaching and learning strategies? Have they learned it? What do we do if they dont? How do we respond if they dont? HOW do we know if they have learned it? What evidence do we have of the learning?
PLC Crucial Questions What do we want each student to learn, know, or be able to do? What evidence do we have of the learning? How will we respond when some students dont learn? How will we respond to those who have already learned?
Student Crucial Questions What do I need to know? What do I need to know? Where am I now? Where am I now? How do I get there? How do I get there? What happens if I fail? What happens if I fail?
Building a Collaborative Culture Article from Learning by Doing Discuss & record key points Share with large group 2 Hand-outs Learning by Doing
Professional Learning Community Continuum Discuss and Complete with your team Select one person to report to group Building a Collaborative Culture
Video Clip Example What do you think you will see? What do you think you will hear? Who will participate? What questions and results will be discussed? What data will be shared? What action steps will be taken?
What examples did you hear of: Focus on learning? Four essential questions? Collaboration with a focus on learning? Collective Inquiry? Best Practice? Action orientation? Continuous Improvement? Focus on results?
Next steps: Discuss & Plan the format of your grade level meeting Focus on Learning and the 4 questions What might it look like? Who would attend? What data will be shared? What questions & results will be shared? What action will be taken?
