PLC's: How are they Effective?
Professional learning has throughout educational history in the United States been designed in a top-down structure. This way of designing learning opportunities treats the educator as a person who will be trained to perform a certain set of predetermined strategies to increase student growth. In fact, we don't normally use the term learning; instead, we use the term development.
Below is a list of PLC Traits:
collaborative learning to increase student achievement
administrative support (time & empowerment)
norms of mutuality, community & equality
reflective dialogue on curriculum, instruction & student development
