Jolly, Anne
Journal of Staff Development, v34 n2 p32-37 Apr 2013
Learning teams must take many steps in making their time together meaningful and productive. Once teams know what they are setting out to accomplish through careful data analysis, their next step is to create a plan to guide their journey. Through this planning process, collaborative teams make clear their assumptions and beliefs about the work they're doing and keep their top priorities in mind. Throughout the planning process, learning team members must keep in mind that professional learning teams address student needs by focusing on increasing teachers' learning and expertise. Each team will likely take a different path to reach its goal. This article offers examples of two schools that each chose a goal of increasing student reading comprehension across all content areas.
