This is the 3rd infographic on the PLC collaborative cycle.  This one reflects school culture and the effect on the the PLC.  When things are firing on all cylinders, magic happens.

The culture graphic has the other two nestled inside.  I believe culture has a strong impact on how things are shaped inside the building.

I've identified Leadership; Staff Relationships; Teachers as Learners and Vision & Values as having an impact on culture, which in turns, has an impact on our work as a Professional Learning Community.

I believe the school culture has a great impact on the success of the collaborative cycle.   This in turn, can affect student learning.

The three infographics comes from my experience as a school principal, but also influenced by Mike Mattos, Anthony Muhammad, Ken Williams, Bill Ferriter and Todd Whitaker.  

I'm working on an article that stitches the three infographics together.

Future doctors and lawyers borrow a lot. Future professors, not so much.

My 2nd Infographic on the Professional Learning Community Collaboration Cycle.

This one shows the role of school leadership and how it supports the Collaboration Cycle.

The first infographic is nestled in the middle.  The new descriptors show our role in supporting the process.

Yes, I'm also working on a third!

My infographic showing the collaboration cycle I use at schools.  It is in it's basic form right now but hoping to expand on each key idea at a later time.

The cycle can span a term or semester.  It could also span a whole year or more.

At one school, we did three cycles a year.

At my current school, which I am new at, we completed one cycle.

The key is to provide time for teachers to collaborate.   How do you get the time to collaborate?

I have provided time by taking all the students into the gym.  We also build collaborative time into professional development days and staff meetings.  Teacher leaders and myself facilitate the discussions.

Teachers collaborate during the Inquiry, Design, Share, Reflect and Evaluate stages.

Teaching and Assessing can be done cooperatively.

We continue the cycle until we feel our actions are making an impact on student learning.  If not, we go through the process again.

It's not locked and can be fluid but I've found these are the common ideas when we go through a collaborative cycle.

If we think we've achieved our goal, it's important to celebrate with the school community!

Thanks everyone for the Shares and +1s!  The graphic shows how I approach a PLC.

I'm working on a second one that shows the role of school leadership in supporting the Collaborative Cycle.  It's in draft form and will likely change as I spend time reflecting on it!

Every state in the U.S. has a law addressing bullying, but even in states that require local anti-bullying policies, not every district has them, according to a new report.
A new report finds that many school districts lack bullying policies, despite state laws requiring them. And the policies that are in place often overlook LGBT students.

Nowadays, it has become imperative to pursue an MBA to gain the necessary entrepreneurship skills. But as studying at a traditional business school can be highly expensive these days and result in a heavy student debt. Do you think it is better to pursue #fasttrackMBA online?
