Week 6 Discussion 2 – Baretta Wilson: Forming Professional Learning Communities
Access the link below and watch the video, “Baretta Wilson: Forming Professional Learning Communities.”
This is a short video but has some very good suggestions. This principal made a conscious effort to “advocate” for her teachers to have the opportunity to collaborate. What is she doing that you have seen in your school? How can you apply her principles when you become a building administrator?
The link to the Wallace Foundation website is also included in this week’s “Readings and Resources” section. It would be well worth your time to view each of these short videos that have great ideas. For example, what about having a student or students sit in on your professional learning community?
Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
