About This Book
About the PLC series:
Welcome to an adventure! If you are a teacher who is interested in developing a professional learning community to develop your classroom repertoire and increase your students’ achievement and motivation, you are in for a treat. A professional learning community (PLC) is a small group of teachers or administrators that meets regularly and works between meetings to accomplish shared goals. PLCs are vehicles for connecting teacher practice and student outcomes, improving both.
About this book:
Exploring Formative Assessment is your guide to creating a PLC to help further your understanding of how to use formative assessment in your school or classroom. You’ll find everything you need to organize and run your PLC, including agendas, handouts, worksheets, and the background reading for each of seven sessions. You’ll get the chance to try out new techniques and to collaborate with your colleagues as you deepen your understanding of formative assessment.
