Effective Professional Learning Communities
Teachers will spend each Monday morning working in collaborative teams to determine answers to the following essential questions:
- What do we want students to know and be able to do?
- How will we know whether or not they have learned?
- What will we do if they need more time and support?
- What will we do to enrich the learning of those who are already proficient?
- How can we continue to inform and improve our practice?
