Tell us about your PLC
The old big buzz are PLCs – Professional Learning Communities where teachers work together in schools to co-plan and co-inquire about curriculum, teaching, and of course their students. But is that what is taking place in those communities?
PLCs hold so much promise as a forum for teachers to collectively study their practice and with the support and action of school colleagues.
Yet, I understand for some, the PLC is just a new venue for collecting school data and with the requirement that teachers do so.
I also understand that in some school districts, the PLCs have replaced other teacher professional development workshops.
Tell us what is happening in your PLC and what you recommend.
