Learning by Doing: A Handbook for Professional Communities at Work - a practical guide for PLC teams and leadership
Manufacturer: Solution Tree
Brand: Brand: Solution Tree
Finalist--2011 Independent Book Publishers Association Benjamin Franklin AwardSince the publication of the first edition of Learning by Doing, the authors have made presentations to tens of thousands of educators, served on dozens of panels to answer their questions, worked with several districts on a long-term ongoing basis to assist with their implementation of the professional learning community (PLC) concept, and participated in ongoing dialogue with educators on the allthingsplc.info website.
