“Stuart, Callaway, and the contributors combine powerful strategies with clear and concrete examples showing why high-performing schools around the world embrace the PLC process. This resource is a true commentary on the power of collaboration and deep commitment to a culture of personalization, transdisciplinary learning, and student agency.”

Daniel Kerr, Lower School Director, American School of Paris

“The PLC process implemented along with the IB PYP curriculum provides the structure and direction for schools to become and remain highly effective and learning progressive. This book’s many strategies and real-school examples encourage teachers to work together to measure student results and assess their effectiveness to go beyond simply relying on intentions.”

Rosalind Poon, vice principal 8–12 and former teacher consultant for assessment and literacy, Richmond School District, British Columbia, Canada

"The educators who have provided their expertise and insights in this book are some of the most passionate and results-driven professionals I have had the pleasure of working with. Their practical experiences are proof that being a PLC can and will improve learning for students and increase teachers’ abilities, skills, and knowledge. They show how, when schools and teachers are dedicated to the PLC process and give the time and effort necessary, they will realize real change and exceptional performance."

Michael Schooler, head of school, Schutz American School, Alexandria, Egypt
