SMART Goal: The PLC members will grow in understanding/proficiency for Project-based Learning and Balanced Assessment by engaging in regular lesson study aimed at achieving these objectives in the Learning for Life vision statement.
CHALLENGE: Collaboratively design and implement a PBL common lesson for our PLCs; utilize lesson study and instructional rounds to enhance the PBL learning and practice results-oriented decision making.
- How did the lesson continue this week? Let’s learn from the PBL lesson study pioneers – Math/Sci, English, and Language.
- Are we all on the same page about what we are attempting to accomplish by way of our SMART goal? (i.e., Are all PLCs intending to implement a PBL pilot with student learners by year’s end?)
- How should we continue to design the PBL common lesson plan? How will we support the various PLC pbl efforts as our teams begin to work on different projects (with their students)?
- How will we assess the effectiveness of this PLC pbl work? How is this a component of our “SCF” for PLCs?
UPCOMING: How will we utilize the PLC feedback survey for collecting data for 2011-12?
