Coherent Instructional Improvement and PLCs: Is It Possible to Do Both?
Jacobson, David
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n6 p38-45 Mar 2010
Two approaches to professional learning communities, the inquiry-oriented and the results-oriented approaches, both have weaknesses. Neither adequately addresses the overall coherence of a school's efforts to improve teaching and learning. A third model, the Common Priorities approach, combines the strengths of the other two approaches and explicitly promotes the three types of coherence that are critical to realizing the full potential of professional learning communities. (Contains 3 figures.)
