  13. 13. “There is now conclusive, compelling research stating that acting as a Professional Learning Community (PLC) is the most powerful and effective process to systemically change school culture and improve student learning.” - Sharon Kramer, PLC Conference: Connecting the Dots: From ELA Standards to Formative Assessment to Interventions and Extensions, 2014
  14. 14. The Big Ideas of a PLC We accept learning as the fundamental purpose of our school and therefore are willing to examine all practices and their impact on learning. We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose. We cultivate a collaborative culture through the development of high-performing teams. We assess our effectiveness on the basis of results rather than intentions. We seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.
  15. 15. Selection of Articles / Videos Get with your grade level Watch all of the videos Read all of the articles Decide as a group what videos/articles you will use for the pre-test and the post-test
  16. 16. Develop Answer Key for Videos Work with your grade level team to determine what are key points you want your students to identify in the videos. Work together to fill in the Note-Taking Matrix for the Videos so every teacher in the grade level is looking for the same key information. Determine protocol for how you will instruct this portion of the assessment (i.e. Will you give examples or will it be all student generated? Are you explicitly modeling how to fill in the matrix? Are you watching videos whole class or are students watching them independently at their own pace? ) Be sure to record assessment decisions made on the WriteWell© Scoring Clinic Notes page to ensure assessment fidelity when giving the assessment.
  17. 17. Develop Answer Key for Articles Work with your grade level team to determine what are key points you want your students to identify in the articles. Work together to fill in the Note-Taking Matrix for the Articles so every teacher in the grade level is looking for the same key information.

Determine protocol for how you will instruct this portion of the assessment (i.e. Will you give examples or will it be all student generated? Are you explicitly modeling how to fill in the matrix? Are you reading articles whole class or are students reading them independently at their own pace? ) Be sure to record assessment decisions made on the WriteWell© Scoring Clinic Notes page to ensure assessment fidelity when giving the assessment.
