Document & measure the impact of your professional learning communities.
With GroweLab, you can facilitate highly effective PLC groups that fuel teacher growth and student achievement.
3 things every PLC should have, but are often overlooked.
Documentation & Action Items
As we like to say, if it’s not documented, it didn’t happen. Without proper documentation, how can you be sure that PLC groups are actually meeting, much less keep track of the actions/tasks that teachers should be focusing on between sessions?
Evidence of Improved Practice
PLCs typically focus exclusively on student learning and behavior, spending very little time reviewing evidence of instructional practice, honing teachers' skills, and improving their implementation of the research-based best practices proven to improve student outcomes.
Data Summarizing Impact
Most districts that implement PLCs do not have a streamlined system for tracking or measuring PLCs sessions. Even simple questions like, “How much time are teachers spending in PLCs?” are difficult to answer.
PLCs facilitated in GroweLab can do all this and so much more!
