This book examines the question, “What happens when, despite our best efforts in the classroom, a student does not learn?” In traditional schools, the response to this question has been left to individual classroom teachers, whereas a Professional Learning Community will not leave this critical question to each teacher to resolve. A PLC will, instead, create a schoolwide system of interventions that provides all students with additional time and support when they experience difficulty in their learning. Whatever It Takes is full of specific strategies to make an immediate impact in helping schools transition from theory to action!
