I was trained in this method of teaching which can be used for an evaluation-type observation in Louisiana (per the Charlotte  Danielson-style Rubric.) I have a powerpoint and would be available to make 30-, 45-,  or 90-minute presentations to your school or deparetment.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 24, 2014 11:49 PM

The article is a bit dated as it was published in 2004, but it is still worth a read. I used professional learning communities (PLC) as a teacher when I thought I wanted to go into administration. My experience was that there has been a recent resurgence in PLC thinking, but it is watered down. Last year, we were ordered to participate, met at most once a month during PD days, and had little choice in what we wanted to do. It was a team not a community.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, April 24, 2014 11:58 PM

PLC's can be powerful learning opportunities as long as they aren't co-opted for another purpose. Combined with Personal Learning Environments, a PLC can be a powerful way for teachers to share and learn, empowering them to bring their learning to their classrooms.
