Eaker, Robert; Keating, Janel
Solution Tree
What would a learning community look like "if we really meant it" when we committed to ensuring the learning of each student? What would we consider good enough for our own children? In "Every School, Every Team, Every Classroom," the authors suggest that these two questions drive PLC leaders to embed PLC at Work[TM] practices in their entire district. With a focus on creating simultaneous top-down and bottom-up leadership, you'll learn how to grow PLCs with concentrated direction and encouraging innovation at every level of the district. With many examples and reproducible tools, you'll see how effective district leaders, principals, and teams can work together to create a guaranteed and viable curriculum. Benefits include: (1) Explains the real work that districts must do to ensure that every school implements PLC practices; (2) Explores how to build excitement and commitment to the PLC mission; (3) Shows how to build shared knowledge of PLC practices with school board members, principals, teams, individual teachers, and the broader community; (4) Provides strategies for district leaders to support and monitor the critical work of principals in creating collaborative teams; (5) Offers strategies and tools for principals to support and monitor the critical work of teacher teams focused on learning; and (6) Suggests strategies and tools to help teacher teams focus their collaborative work on student learning.
