Building a Professional Learning Community at Work?: A Guide to the First Year addresses the real-world critical questions that arise when schools begin their work to become professional learning communities. How can administrators and teachers take the promise of a PLC and turn it into reality? How can school leaders transform theories of collaboration into highly effective nuts-and-bolts practices? This book is set in the context of one year in the life of a PLC. It chronicles the efforts of a building principal, Steve, and his teachers to build a true PLC at Central Middle School by focusing on the successes and challenges inherent in the process. Each chapter includes four elements. An opening story highlights an important event in the growth of a learning community. ?Lessons From the Front Line? spotlights the successful decisions and common mistakes made by the characters in the opening story. The ?Relevant Theory and Research? section introduces the theories of experts and connects them to the work of PLCs to provide readers with an approachable framework for understanding?and a language for describing?the complex, yet predictable, changes that are inevitable when schools restructure as PLCs. The ?Recommendations? section offers a collection of suggestions from which to draw while working through change in a building.

In Common Formative Assessment: A Toolkit for Professional Learning Communities at Work¿, authors Kim Bailey and Chris Jakicic argue that real improvement in student achievement can begin when teams tackle the task of writing and implementing common formative assessments. They assert that teams that are engaged in designing, using, and responding to common formative assessments become more knowledgeable about their standards, more assessment literate, and able to develop more strategies for helping all students learn. The authors use a comfortable, conversational tone to describe how to create and incorporate common formative assessments into the practices of a PLC to monitor and enhance student learning. They provide numerous accessible tools and templates for teams to adjust to suit their own needs and offer protocols with clearly listed steps educators can take to facilitate the formative assessment process.Chapter 1 provides an overview of the purpose, structure, and workings of a professional learning community. The authors provide an explanation of how common formative assessments fit into the work of teams. Chapter 2 defines common formative assessments and explains where they¿along with other types of assessments¿fit in a balanced assessment system and provides schools with guidelines for designing these systems using assessment data effectively and efficiently. Chapter 3 explains how teams can approach the foundational work of identifying and using power standards as the starting point for creating common formative assessments. Chapter 4 guides teams through the process of unwrapping their power standards to reveal clear learning targets for instruction and formative assessment. Using a seven-step process, chapter 5 focuses on how to develop and design assessments for learning targets in a way that will provide accurate data and clear information to teachers and students. Chapter 6 provides tools and outlines steps for creating pacing guides and designing unit plans that respond to and incorporate assessments. Chapter 7 contains protocols teams can use to gather, organize, and analyze data in a way that will best enable them to identify students¿ needs. Chapter 8 explores ways that teachers can involve students in the assessment process and encourage students to assume ownership of their own learning. Chapter 9 addresses how teams can continue to improve, stay motivated, and sustain their efforts.
