Professional Learning Communities


Professional learning communities allow educators a collaborative format to examine subgroup data and specifically target learning deficits in students. Professional learning communities allow teachers to learn from each other by studying best practices and sharing their own expertise in order to create optimal learning environments that will ensure learning among these subgroups.



James Fenimore Cooper School created a professional learning community that focused on vocabulary development, which was a need for many of their students. Teachers reviewed the current research on vocabulary and created and shared a vocabulary station.
