How do you “guide the learning” during your professional learning communities (PLCs) or data meetings to ensure there are equitable learning outcomes for ALL students?
Below are three strategies, I share with school leaders to ensure PLCs are focused on the change in which they want to see for ALL students:
- Identify a focus towards your instructional priority/goal
- Create a PLC protocol document that will serve as a tool to keep the equitable learning at the core
- Develop outcomes focused questions that will promote equitable learning as teachers plan for instruction
As I share these beginning steps with school leaders, I often guide them to this particular article (referenced at the end) which supports the research of equity and effective PLCs.
I am an advocate for PLCs that present a rich opportunity to improve instruction, as there is evidence that teacher teams, collaborating together, impact the learning outcomes of students.
