Description

In Enriching the Learning: Meaningful Extensions for Proficient Students in a PLC at Work, author Michael Roberts offers K–12 teachers and administrators detailed methods for extending and enriching proficient students’ learning and responding to critical question 4 of a professional learning community (PLC): How will we extend the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency? Based on the author’s experience as a principal of a PLC school, Enriching the Learning offers three types of lesson extensions – (1) skill extensions, (2) interest extensions, and (3) social extensions – necessary to engage proficient students. Through the book’s numerous strategies, readers will develop the skills and lessons necessary to ensure the continued success of their most proficient students.
