What is a PLC?

Professional Learning Communities engage in an ongoing

process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring

cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better

results for the students they serve. Teams work collaboratively

to assess, analyze results, and create interventions and

extensions to ensure the success of all students.

The Four Questions of a PLC

1. What do we want students to know and be able to do?

2. How will we know when the students acquire the essential

knowledge and skills?

3. How will we respond for students who don’t learn the

essential knowledge and skills?

4. How will we respond for students who have already

demonstrated the essential knowledge and skills?
