  1. Hillsborough Points of Learning Debbie Burns – Woodfern Elementary School Kelly Owens – Auten Road Intermediate School Karen Mammino – Auten Road Intermediate School Debbie Gross – Hillsborough Middle School Lucille Titus – Hillsborough High School Kim Feltre – Science Supervisor

  2. Thinking About the Past: Learning • Establishing PLCs K-12; expanded numbers of teachers/students who benefitted from them • BIT – looking at big ideas through vertical and horizontal articulations • Learning Progressions

  3. Thinking About the Past: Successes • Connecting to each other through BIT and vertical articulations • Completed Train the Trainers and developed BILD workshop (formerly mini-BIM) • Summer Science Institute • Continuing Education Units

  4. Thinking About the Past: Works In Progress • Common science assessments for all K-12 units • Dabble in data analysis – technological capability not in place to drill down to individual students at this time

  5. Thinking About the Past: Obstacles • Limited backing of building administration • Lack of time available to work in PLCs • Struggle with buy-in and resistors to change • Administrative lack of awareness of PLCs • Need to build teacher awareness of connecting big ideas

  6. Imprint • PLCs promoting change; teachers understand their impact on student learning because of their collaborative work • Mindful of the experiences teachers are providing for students • Importance of collecting and analyzing data to identify the best practices that maximize student learning • Taking time to make connections; making it real for students; reflecting on connections and ensuring we make students aware of them – changing the way we teach

  7. Impact • District initiative to implement PLCs for all content areas • HEA contract reflects time for PLCs • 25 administrators attending DuFours’ Professional Learning Communities at Work Institute in August • School administrators scheduling time for PLCs • PLCs – see curriculum and standards through other people’s eyes – benefit from others’ perspectives • Deeper understanding of content • No longer an island

  8. Envisioning the Future • BILD workshop (formerly mini-BIM) to expose more teachers to BIT and making connections • More vertical articulation • Develop curriculum that reflects learning progressions • Common assessments that reflect BIT • Build in time for teachers to talk about how they build and administer assessments for valid results • Change communication with parents (online grading) and focus on assessment data • Analyze and use data to modify and improve instructional strategies and learning experiences as a means to meet students’ needs • Summer Science/PLC Institute

  9. Making a Difference! • Adding to our toolbox so that we are Making a difference – one learner at a time • “...every teacher is a change agent, helping students learn and grow over the course of the school year.” • Evans, 1996, p. 24
