Build cohesive PLC+ teams to improve learning outcomes
Effective teacher collaboration can amplify student learning and well-being outcomes, increase teacher satisfaction rates, and improve the onboarding of new teachers. Yet developing a cohesive PLC+ team isn’t always so simple. Designed as a companion to PLC+: Better Decisions and Greater Impact by Design and The PLC+ Playbook, this easy-to-use playbook for school leaders provides strategies, techniques, and evidence-based approaches to help leaders foster successful collaboration among teachers and positively impact student learning.
Four cross-cutting values are infused within each guiding question: high expectations, activation, individual and collective teacher efficacy, and equity. Building on this framework and drawing from Visible Learning research, the guide offers specific instructional leadership actions and behaviors to promote cohesion in PLC+ teams. Leaders will learn:
- Contextual information to boost knowledge about effectively engaging with adults
- Essential information on how to lead PLC+ teams to become strong, interdependent, and productive
- Leadership tools to support and inspire others to work at optimal levels
- Examples and insights into time management, decision-making, successes, failures, and learning opportunities
