EDTR 269 - Professional Learning Communities


Introduces the fundamental concepts of a Professional Learning Community as an approach to continuously improve instruction and student performance. Evidence from schools as well as the research community points to these structures and practices as making an immediate improvement in student achievement. The structure starts with a group of teachers who meet regularly as a team to identify essential and valued student learning, develop common formative assessments, analyze current levels of student achievement, set achievement goals, and then share and create lessons and strategies to improve upon those levels. Pass/Fail grades will be given. Prerequisite(s): None.
(PCS 1.6, 2 credit hours - 2 hours lecture, 0 hours lab)
