High-Impact TEAMS in a PLC at Work® Institute

Houston, Texas | November 16–18, 2020
USD $709.00
  • $689.00 per person for teams of 5 or more
 

Meaningful collaboration is the engine that drives every successful professional learning community (PLC). At this professional learning event, you and your team will discover the practical steps needed to harness your collective power and make strong collaborative practices a priority across your school or district.

Delivered by PLC experts with decades of experience, each keynote and breakout session thoughtfully addresses key elements of forming and sustaining high-impact teams. Teachers will discover research-backed strategies and tools they can use to set and monitor norms, engage in highly productive conversations, and confront common challenges. Leaders will learn how to provide the clarity, feedback, and support necessary for teams to grow in their professional practice and fully focus their efforts on the transformational work of PLCs.

Together, teachers and leaders from your school community will leave with the inspiration and know-how to collaboratively improve critical components of education—from curriculum and instruction to assessment and intervention—with the ultimate goal of helping all students learn at high levels.

  • Clarify the work of collaborative teams.
  • Develop collective commitments for each team.
  • Establish steps for a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
  • Determine short- and long-term SMART goals.
  • Acquire a toolkit of templates, organizers, and planning tools to take back to your school or district.
  • Ensure your singletons are vital members of teams.
  • Learn to take collective responsibility for student learning, rather than working in isolation.
  • Explore ways to monitor student learning through an ongoing assessment process that includes frequent, team-developed common formative assessments.
  • Determine collective best practices for providing intervention/enrichment to students.
  • Establish schoolwide requirements for teams, while also giving them the authority to make important decisions.
