This expansion of the best-selling Whatever It Takes: How Professional Learning Communities Respond When Kids Don’t Learn expands on original ideas and presses further with new insights on the pyramid of interventions strategy. The authors explore the following questions:

  • Is the PLC improvement process sustainable?
  • Is this improvement process transferable?
  • What is the role of the central office in promoting the PLC concept throughout a district?
  • How should we enrich and extend the learning of students who are proficient?
  • What prerequisite framework must be put in place in order for schools to create effective systems of intervention and enrichment?
  • How have the changes in national educational policy (such as RTI) impacted the premise that schools should have a systematic plan for responding to the learning needs of students?

The authors examine schools and districts across North America that have successfully gone from traditional cultures to PLCs. Case studies of schools and students just like yours provide powerful evidence of the effectiveness of PLC intervention strategies.
