Lois Brown Easton

If you are looking for an organic approach to purpose-driven professional learning, this is the book for you. Award-winning educator Lois Brown Easton’s latest work provides a compelling case study in narrative form, a chronological PLC planning outline, and first-hand “lessons learned” about how PLCs develop, mature, and sustain themselves. You will not receive a PLC “prescription,” but you will find inspiration, wisdom, discussion questions, and a companion CD with:

  • Professional learning designs for varied PLC contexts
  • Helpful forms, templates, and rubrics
  • Protocols for collecting, analysing, and applying data

The text emphasises that the central word in PLCs is learning. This focus on intentional learning lights the path for educators who wish to narrow achievement gaps and help all students succeed.
