  • Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)
    IMPACT Grant 3-Day Institute
    @ Carnegie Library in Atlantic City
    August 10, 2011  
  • "The growth of any craft depends on shared practice and honest dialogue among the people who do it. We grow by private trial and error, to be sure -- but our willingness to try, and fail, as individuals is severely limited when we are not supported by a community that encourages such risks."
    -- The Courage to Teach; Palmer, 1998, p. 144
  • "Understandably there is considerable debate over the definition of learning communities...I shall simply define them as groups of people engaged in intellectual interaction for the purpose of learning."
    -- Cross, "Why Learning Communities? Why Now?" About Campus, 1998, p. 4
