Description

While many books and articles have described what PLCs are
and how they can positively impact school culture and student achievement, Kid by Kid, Skill by Skill focuses
specifically on teachers: the central figures in PLC efforts. This book helps
educators fully visualise how a PLC framework can help them continually examine
and improve the results of their work.


F–12 educators will



  • boost teacher and students
    expectations and foster an environment that promotes higher-level learning for
    all students

  • learn strategies to engage
    students and assess their progress

  • explore the challenges – and
    ultimate failure – of school-improvement efforts in traditional schools, and
    realise that PLCs conquer these challenges

  • access samples, templates and
    other tools to support their PLC journey
