This 10th anniversary sequel to the author's best-selling book, Professional Learning Communities at WorkTM: Best Practices for Enhancing Student Achievement (DuFour & Eaker, 1998), is a merger of research and practice. It offers educators specific, practical recommendations for transforming their schools into PLCs so their students learn at higher levels and their profession becomes more rewarding, satisfying, and fulfilling. The authors examine research, practices, and standards in education, as well as organizational development, change processes, leadership, and successful practices outside of education. They provide core information on the PLC concept, along with new insights gleaned from their work with leaders in education and in real schools and districts across North America. They encourage educators to undertake the challenging but rewarding process of building their collective capacity to create schools and districts that operate as high-performing PLCs. This volume features a detailed chapter on the rise and fall of school reform, information on assessment, strategies for intervention and enrichment, and chapters on the roles of classroom teachers, the principal, the central office, and parents and the community in a PLC

This book details the characteristics of schools that continue to provide their students with a good education.

Drawing on this research, the book makes 10 recommendations for those interested in moving a school toward excellence: (1) people improvement is crucial to school improvement; (2) excellent schools have a clear vision of their goals; (3) the day-to-day operation of excellent schools is guided by a few shared central values; (4) excellent schools have principals who are effective leaders; (5) the shaping of organizational culture and climate is critical to the creation of an excellent school; (6) the curriculum reflects the values of the school and provides a focus that helps teachers and students "stick to the knitting"; (7) excellent schools monitor what is important; (8) teachers in excellent schools are leaders within their classrooms; (9) excellent schools celebrate progress toward their vision; and (10) excellent schools are committed to continual renewal.

Whether the project is large in scope, such as changing the orientation of a school to Professional Learning Communities, or smaller in scope, such as the development of formative assessments or new grading practices in a single semester, the 100-Day Leader brings a sense of daily accomplishment, feedback, mid-course corrections, focus, and encouragement to the organization--from the classroom to the board room.

Helping teachers use research findings : the consumer-validation process by Robert E Eaker( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A program stressing teacher involvement and classroom implementation of educational research findings is described. The program was designed to familiarize teachers with current findings, have them apply the findings in their classrooms, analyze their own teaching behavior, and critically evaluate the findings in terms of their applicability to the classroom. Elementary teachers from the Murfreesboro (Tennessee) elementary schools participated. Seminars were conducted on research findings in the areas of planning and organization of classroom activities, student time on task, classroom management, and affective teaching skills. Following the seminars, teachers implemented the research findings in their classrooms. They were helped in a collegial way by researchers and also shared and discussed their experiences with other teachers. This report includes lists of specific activities and suggestions developed by the teachers for implementing research findings in the areas discussed in the seminars. The program created a partnership between the researcher and the teacher that was practical, professionally healthy, and realistic. (Jd)
Teacher perceptions of dissemination of research on teaching findings by Robert E Eaker( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the perceptions of 105 teachers regarding research-on-teaching findings as a resource for instructional improvement. The teachers filled out a 40-item, Likert-scale questionnaire about their perceptions. Teachers value research findings that focus on classroom instruction and think that the findings have practical classroom application. The teachers thought professional journals an excellent source of research information, but were not as pleased with the research dissemination done by or through principals, supervisors, faculty meetings, inservice meetings, and professional meetings. Generally speaking, grade-level assignment, degree earned, and number of years experience had little effect on the teachers' perceptions. The questionnaire with the frequency distribution of replies is reproduced in this report. (Authors/JD)
