The Foundational PLC at Work Model Agenda is designed for those who are new to the PLC at Work process or need a refresher in the beginning stages of implementation. Day one provides an overview of the PLC at Work process and details the school transformation that occurs when teams commit to building a PLC. During day two, teams dive into the work and start the process of developing strategies to build a high-performing school.
The Professional Learning Community Journey: Creating a School of High Expectations
Creating a culture of high expectations in every classroom is a huge task. It requires leaders to orchestrate, choreograph, and direct conversations to engage staff members in a more thoughtful look at learning. In moving from a teacher-centered school to one that is learning-centered, educators must examine their practices in light of what they know about learning.
Tim Brown examines commonly held beliefs about learning. He challenges attendees to consider school and classroom practices that must be present if educators are to act on what they say they will do.
The Sustaining PLC at Work Model Agenda helps those already on the PLC journey dive deeper into the work. Sessions address questions and challenges that teams face as they continue to build an effective PLC. Attendees also learn how to close achievement gaps and implement intervention strategies to ensure all students learn at high levels.
Taping Before Painting: Taking the Critical Steps to Respond Collectively When Students Don't Learn
The third critical question of a PLC, What do we do when students don’t learn? often stumps teachers and administrators. Luis F. Cruz showcases methods that schools across the country use to guarantee effective collaboration (taping the room) to ensure an effective collective response when students do not learn (painting the room). Participants learn how the PLC and RTI processes complement each other in increasing academic achievement for all students.
Participants learn why it is vital that teams reculture and restructure their PLC efforts. They see how Tier 1 interventions are essential to the process. Dr. Cruz exposes participants to structures that allow schools to respond when students do not demonstrate learning.
The RTI at Work Model Agenda assists educators in developing a plan for building a powerful, tiered system of support. Teams learn how to unpack standards, design effective assessments that improve instruction and guide interventions, and target interventions to meet individual student needs.
Eating the Elephant: Transforming Ideas Into Action
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Implementing RTI can be daunting. The key is to break the process down into meaningful steps. Mike Mattos assists participants in creating practical action steps to implement the four Cs of RTI: collective responsibility, concentrated instruction, convergent assessment, and certain access. Participants leave with a practical implementation plan and the inspiration to get started.
