Our school district is big into PLCs (professional learning communities). In theory, this is an exciting way to connect with other professionals and analyze student work in order to improve teaching and learning. In reality, these extra meetings seem to always feel like “one more thing”. Today we had the opportunity to share the fruits of our labor. My opinion? This process is totally worth it. Nobody reinvented what it means to teach and learn. However, everyone had a new insight that added to our collective brain.
How can we continue to find ways to contribute to the collective brain?
