Using PLC's to Strengthen Math Content Knowledge

By Dr. Janie Schielack and Dinah Chancellor

Professional Learning Communities can strengthen a group of educators in various capacities providing a framework intended for professional growth but also an environment that fosters personal learning that effectively improves their individual teaching practice. This level of engagement with fellow teachers encourages a trickle-down effect, whereby teachers apply the same process as students work through an activity. When this level of engagement with students is consistently practiced, a deeper level of understanding by the student is achieved.
  • Do you currently use PLC's? How are they useful to you? 
  • If you do not, how do you think they could benefit your own teaching practice?
  • How might students benefit from a teacher who is in a PLC?
