1 Agenda For Today! Professional Learning Communities (Self Audit) Professional Learning Communities (Self Audit) School Improvement Snapshot School Improvement Snapshot Harris Poll Data Harris Poll Data November 1, 2007

2 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

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 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?

4 Professional Learning Community Model Focus on Learning rather than Teaching Focus on Learning rather than Teaching Work Collaboratively Work Collaboratively Hold yourself accountable for the results Hold yourself accountable for the results

5 PLC Crucial Questions What do we want each student to learn? What evidence do we have of the learning? How will we respond when some students dont learn?

7 Culture Shifts in a PLC Shift in Fundamental Purpose …… From teaching to learning Shift in Fundamental Purpose …… From teaching to learning Shift in Use of Assessments Shift in Use of Assessments …… From summative to frequent formative Shift in Response When Students Dont Learn Shift in Response When Students Dont Learn ….. From remediation to intervention Shift in the Work of Teachers Shift in the Work of Teachers ….. From isolation to collaboration

8 Culture Shifts in a PLC Shift in Focus …… From focusing on assignment completion to student learning Shift in Focus …… From focusing on assignment completion to student learning Shift in School Culture Shift in School Culture …… From independence to interdependence …… From independence to interdependence Shift in Professional Development Shift in Professional Development ….. From learning individually to collaboration & teaming

19 Stakeholder Involvement Involve stakeholders to: –Better understand problems –Provide improvement suggestions Use quality tools: –Stay objective and productive –Everyone provides input quickly Obtain broad representation Involving stakeholders validates them and will ultimately lead to higher customer satisfaction

20 Example Issue- School rules do not keep order and discipline 1.) Identify stakeholders with problem –Parents, Students and Staff –Gather a representative group –Arrange a time for the group to meet

21 Issue- School rules do not keep order and discipline 2.) Ask key questions such as: Help us understand the issue: –How has this issue personally affected you? –Provide examples of how school rules do not keep order and discipline. –What do you think is the cause of this issue at our school? Help us solve the issue: –What suggestions and ideas do you have that would help improve this issue?

22 Issue- School rules do not keep order and discipline 3.) Use quality tools to seek input on the key questions: –Brainstorming Generating ideas on sticky notes –Affinity Diagram Put together like ideas/themes –Nominal Group Technique Narrow the focus to the most important

23 Brainstorming What suggestions and ideas do you have that would help improve this issue?

24 Affinity Diagram What suggestions and ideas do you have that would help improve this issue? Theme 1 Theme 2 Theme 3 Theme 5 Theme 4

25 Nominal Group Technique (option) What suggestions and ideas do you have that would help improve this issue? Theme 1 Theme 2 Theme 3 Theme 5 Theme 4

26 Issue- School rules do not keep order and discipline 4.) Clarify and summarize key learning's from the focus group –What did you learn about the issue? –What were the key themes? –How will the team use the information? –What are the next steps?
