BLOOMINGTON, IN–(Marketwired – May 11, 2017) – After 19 years of hosting Professional Learning Communities at Work™ Institutes for thousands of educators in North America, Solution Tree — one of the United States’ premier educational publishers and professional development providers — has announced that it is co-hosting an institute at Singapore American School, September 22–24, 2017. PLC at Work™: The Structure of “How” in International Schools will focus on the unique needs and challenges of implementing the PLC at Work™ concept in international schools.
The PLC at Work™ process is recognized as a powerful strategy for sustained, substantive school improvement. Based on the work of Richard DuFour, Rebecca DuFour, Robert Eaker and Mike Mattos, PLCs are driven by three big ideas: focus on learning, build a collaborative culture and focus on results. In PLCs, teachers work in collaborative teams, and all students learn at high levels.
The institute will pair international schoolteachers with both US presenters and international school presenters to ensure that the international school perspective is represented. For attendees just beginning to explore PLCs, the institute will provide a base of knowledge and practice, including a morning of observing SAS in the PLC process with teacher teams and in the classroom. For those already implementing PLCs, it is an opportunity to revisit the PLC mission, introduce new staff to the process and hear answers to new questions.
