The PLC at Work® Process for Grades PreK–2 Teams
Early childhood learning is a critical launchpad for every student’s social, emotional and academic growth. So it is crucial that schools that operate as professional learning communities (PLCs) include early childhood teacher teams in the PLC process. In What about us? The PLC at Work® process for grades preK–2 teams, teachers will discover how to achieve the full potential of preK–2 classrooms. Authors Diane Kerr, Tracey A Hulen, Jacqueline Heller and Brian K Butler share proven best practices for establishing a guaranteed and viable curriculum, engaging in collective inquiry and job-embedded professional development, and planning high-quality instruction.
Early childhood teachers will:
- understand how a PLC culture and early childhood learning go hand in hand
- explore the environmental, cultural and academic needs of learners in their early childhood years
- map out an effective curriculum that promotes both academic growth and social-emotional learning
- conduct observations, interviews and learning activities to gather and collectively analyse data about student learning
- use a variety of reproducible tools to unwrap learning standards, produce a yearlong curriculum outline, create unit-pacing guides and much more.
