Designing PLCs for Enhancing Student Success: What Do We Know and How Can We Learn More?
AbstractThe MSP KMD project is charged with situating what the MSPs are learning in the broader knowledge base. One area of inquiry we are pursuing involves professional learning communities, an approach for improving mathematics/science teaching and learning that is included in a number of MSP projects. The idea is that by working together, school-based groups of teachers can improve their mathematics/science instruction and, in turn, increase student success. This inquiry builds on a synthesis of the research in a recently-completed NCTAF project; the MSP KMD project is collecting and synthesizing recent MSP research as well as the insights of experienced practitioners utilizing PLCs as a key mechanism for impacting student success in mathematics and science.
