“Everything you want to know about professional learning communities can be found in [this book.] The authors, sometimes known as the 3Rs of professional learning, are among the nations foremost authorities on applying PLC principles in the real world of schools.
The book not only reviews the concepts and practices of a PLC, it also explores in detail deeper learning by educators. The case studies and charts clarify the study of components of implementing a PLC. The book takes you into classrooms and districts to stress how this can make a difference in the improvement of student achievement.
The latest work merges research and practices in a way that offers educators practical recommendations for transforming schools. This is presented in a way that educators can see how students may learn at higher levels, and at the same time their profession becomes more rewarding, satisfying and fulfilling.
This book would be useful for a study group of administrators as well as an excellent resource for an educational leadership class.”
