PLC NUTS & BOLTS
Every PLC at every school is different. Some focus on meeting national, state, district, or building standards. Some identify and "attack" SMART goals to better themselves for annual assessments.
From my research, TAPA would best benefit from small groups where educators opt-in to study subjects and areas that they are personally interested in. The groups, subjects, and areas would not dictated by the calendar, curriculum, or administration—they would be teacher-led projects that benefit TAPA students, TAPA teachers, and the TAPA of the future.
