Summary

This book offers a theoretical framework and practical guidance for creating professional learning communities in schools. It proposes to renew the capacity of the school as a whole to produce positive results for all children. Part 1, "Building Professional Learning Communities: The Cornerstones," discusses the concepts and assumptions instrumental to building school-based professional learning communities. Chapters discuss the role of collegial learning and focus on leadership qualities such as vision, values, service, capacity building and relationship building that support the building of school-based professional learning communities. Part 2, "Building Professional Learning Communities: The Process," offers practical guidance and tools for developing school-based professional learning communities. Chapters provide a framework for a school community's discovery and articulation of its identity and introduces the collaborative learning process that supports staff and families in learning together. Stages of the collaborative learning process are presented along with key questions, supporting activities, and examples. Ten tools that are relevant to building professional learning communities are presented. (Contains 74 references.) (CR)
