Strategic Teacher PLC Guides

Complete professional development resources.

Designed in partnership with more than 75 schools, Strategic Teacher PLC Guides serve as complete professional development resources for a team of teachers (or professional learning community) to learn, plan, and implement an important research-based practice in their classrooms.

Each Strategic Teacher PLC Guide also comes with a classroom poster designed to help students learn a new strategy. Research shows that when students are directly taught the steps in a strategy, their ability to use that strategy independently as a learning tool increases dramatically.

“The book makes creating a PLC approachable and troubleshoots one of the greatest obstacles to educators who attempt to create a PLC: time. The Strategic Teacher PLC Guide does it all for you. It provides clear delineation of the compare-and-contrast process, and I can see myself applying this same systematic approach to other higher-order thinking skills.”
