Professional Learning Groups
Our Professional Groups (PLGs) increase the capacity of teachers and leaders to integrate more real-world learning into their schools. Over the course of a year, a cohort of educators gathers regularly to engage in inquiry and improvement cycles to reflect on their practices, test interventions, and make data-informed adjustments. STC staff provides additional coaching, resources, and trainings as appropriate. All of our STC cities run a Real-World Learning PLG that uses our Rubric as a tool for reflection and improvement. Several cities also run supplemental PLGs based on relevant needs indicated by the local network.
“This process has been so helpful to our learning process for how to implement new and engaging learning opportunities for our students.”
“The new tools this year – Dream See Do and regular coaching – really helped us be strategic and stay on track when other issues in the school intruded.”
“I have felt inspired. I have felt motivated with my students and work.”
