This 10th anniversary sequel to Robert Eaker’s best-selling book, Professional Learning Communities at Work™: Best Practices for Enhancing Student Achievement offers educators specific, practical recommendations for transforming their schools into PLCs.

This practical guide examines the most up-to-date research, best practices, and standards in education, as well as organizational development, leadership, and successful practices learned from the world of business.

The book begins with a review of six characteristics of a PLC and three big ideas that drive the PLC concept. It then identifies 12 new, updated ideas for successful PLCs.

Other updated chapters include:

  • The rise and fall of school reform
  • Making the case for professional learning communities
  • The challenges of cultural change
  • Clear mission and shared vision
  • Shared values and common goals
  • Teaching in a professional learning community
  • Assessment in a PLC
  • And much more!

This book is a useful tool for teachers, principals and other school leaders to stimulate the shared mission, vision, commitments and goals and the effort towards continuous school improvement.
