Leading Professional Learning Communities introduced educators to the components of an effective professional learning community (PLC). Now this implementation handbook offers more than 30 structured "learning opportunities" to help busy educators put the components into practice. Ideal as a companion to the original book but also valuable as a stand-alone resource, it guides educators in developing a new PLC or sustaining an existing one. Members of PLCs can use the learning opportunities to facilitate individual and team development. Guiding Professional Learning Communities is a rich field guide for increasing and enhancing teaching quality through the power of educators learning together.
