PLCs Educators committed to working collaboratively in ongoing processes of collective inquiry and action research in order to acheive better results for the students they serve.

"Professionals do not work alone;
they work in teams...to accomplish the goal--to heal the patient,
win the lawsuit, plan the building." Where do we start? 1. DATA driven priorities
2. GOALS that are measurable/tied to an assessment
3. TEAMWORK that produce short-term assessment results plan a lesson/unit > teach it > assess its impact > adjust instruction More information about PLCs Adams Middle School
