Collaborative Teams That Work
Collaborative Teams That Work outlines the 12 essential actions of a cycle of learning carried out by highly successful collaborative teams that have embraced the four critical questions of PLC at Work®. Implemented through each cycle of learning (unit of work), these actions provide teams with a roadmap to ensure students and teachers benefit from the learning their collaborative efforts bring.
Collaborative Teams That Work and the associated 12 actions ensure that the work of the team continually enhances individual and collective teaching practice through job-embedded action research. The 12 key actions that underpin this work guarantee that each meeting becomes a focused professional learning experience for every team member, supporting and enhancing their shared responsibility for the learning of the students they serve.
