Description

This book comprehensively answers the question that many schools ask when seeking to transform themselves into Professional Learning Communities: 'Where do we begin?' The authors focus on the cultural shifts that must take place as schools and their staffs move from more traditional ways of doing things to functioning as Professional Learning Communities, or PLCs. The book includes suggestions for finding the time for transformation, lessons learned from one school that made the transition and a conversation with the authors that answers many of the typical, frequently asked questions asked by professionals considering the shift toward establishing Professional Learning Communities.
