Creating and Protecting the Shared Foundation of a Professional Learning Community at Work (DVD/CD/Facilitator’s Guide)
The best way to implement the professional learning community (PLC) process is to develop the solid foundation necessary to support it. The foundation rests on four pillars: (1) mission, (2) vision, (3) values and (4) goals. The ultimate success of a school’s or district’s PLC implementation depends largely on the staff considering and building consensus around its response to key questions the pillars pose.
In this 47-minute video, Rebecca DuFour and Richard DuFour first examine the four pillars. Then, Richard DuFour, Rebecca DuFour, Tim Brown and Mike Mattos role-play members of a collaborative team (a principal and teachers) discussing grading practices and exploring the implementation of the foundational questions that support a PLC.
The eight segments in this workshop include:
- Welcome and Opening
- The Mission Pillar: Establishing a mission for your school
- The Vision Pillar: Establishing a vision statement for your school
- The Values Pillar: Establishing a values statement (collective commitments) for your school
- The Goals Pillar: Establishing goals for your school
- Clarifying your current reality pertaining to the PLC foundation
- Aligning practices and processes with the PLC foundation
- Addressing discrepancies between actual practice and the pledges of the foundation and Closing
F–12 leaders and administrators can view Creating and Protecting the Shared Foundation of a Professional Learning Community at Work independently or use it with the Facilitator’s Guide to provide one full-day or two half-day workshops. It includes one DVD, 47 minutes in length, and a 56-page Facilitator’s guide in print and on CD.
