PLC-F Agenda: Apr. 19, 2012

How will we utilize the PLC feedback survey for collecting data in 2011-12?  Continue to design and development the 2011-12 PLC survey.

  1. REVIEW: Editing/revising in chunks (completed on 04/12/12)
  2. Designing prompts for SMART Goal – PBL concentrated work
    1. Brainstorm possible prompts in comments for this post.
    2. Collaboratively build common assessment items for PBL and SMART Goal.

Resources:

  1. 2011-12 PLC Assessment DRAFT
  2. 2o10-11 PLC survey prompts
  3. 2010-11 PLC survey data

PLC-F Agenda: Mar. 22, 2012

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?

  • How should we continue to design Phase II of the PBL common lesson plan?
    • Revisit Lino it and debrief use.
    • Brainwriting with Google docs (in PLC-PBL collection)
    • By reviewing and reading Lino it and brainwriting docs, should we find common threads to weave together into multi-disciplinary pbl or PBL?
  • How should we coordinate schedule and scope of various PLC implementations as well as instructional rounds?
  • 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?

  • Ignite-lite re: PCL-F PBL lesson study
  • Debrief Phase I and Phase II of the PBL common lesson plan in 3-ish minutes per team:
      • History
      • Language
      • English
      • Math-Science
  • Continue to design Phase II.
    • Revisit Lino it and debrief use.
    • Brainwriting with Google docs (in PLC-PBL collection)
    • By reviewing and reading Lino it and brainwriting docs, can we find common threads to weave together into multi-disciplinary pbl or PBL?
  • Coordinate schedule and scope of various PLC implementations.
