PLC Training (in the Critical Friendship Model)

“I enjoy experiencing the protocols and getting to know them better.  They definitely take you deeper into the context and thinking.  I like the safe space for diverse perspectives.” Instructional Coach

“The best part for me was the success protocol.  These types of activities that require a deep level of thinking and establish a sense of trust between one another perfectly encapsulate every educators’ goal.”  Teacher 

“I have felt awesome about the past week!  I have learned so much and feel completely comfortable with everyone in the group.  I am really looking forward to putting this all into practice.”  Teacher

"I felt like the training was fantastic. I have not felt as safe sharing thoughts and feelings to my peers before now and I have been in this school as department chair for 4 years. I think it would have been helpful to do more training on how to facilitate so we can feel comfortable leading conversations when we return to our departments and PLCs."

"I appreciate how this training was geared toward facilitating a PLC with a more organic and friendly approach. Not everyone vibes with the strict DuFour PLC approach. I feel like I can more easily facilitate a PLC using processes and activities presented in this training." Principal

Project Based Learning

"I thought it was awesome! This approach is really helping solve major issues with old forms of education. As a product of the regurgitation method I love that this really creates structure around developing working knowledge instead of memorization."  Teacher
