Professional Learning Communities
Over the next two years we will begin to create PLC groups by subject area focused on producing gains in student learning and proofing curriculum. Participation in these learning communities is optional but highly encouraged.
Every day you are running an experiment in your classroom with the instruction you provide. We want to know if changes in our instruction produces learning gains. This is a very testable question that if analyzed appropriatley can lead to a better understanding of our curriculum, teaching strategies, assesment, and most importantly our students. Sometimes we forget to follow through with the data collection, analysis, and conclusion to actually see if learning took place. This process of scientifically looking at a classroom in order to produce gains in learning is the focus of our science PLC groups.
Right now I am looking for motivated teachers to lead these PLC groups. In order to become a educational leader for your PLC you will need to attend a few trainings and be part of the DAVIS science leadership commitee. If you are interested in being a PLC leader please fill out the form below.
Science Learning Communitities
The secondary teachers will have the chance to work in PLC groups by grade level or subject area.
Elementary teachers will already be working at their school level to devleop PLC relationships and science will simply be a part of that.
