Last week I introduced four professional learning community (PLC) styles that provide a framework for deep collaboration.
- Pragmatic PLC: Teachers who prefer this style want ideas and resources they can use tomorrow.
- Supportive PLC: Teachers who prefer this style are looking for modeling, co-planning and expert advice.
- Collegial PLC: Teachers who prefer this style love to share ideas and strategies while retaining some freedom to be creative and put their own stamp on their classrooms.
- Intellectual PLC: Teachers who prefer this style enjoy delving into why things work, the research and theory behind new ideas, and how they fit with what they already know and do.
